Delinquency and opportunity : a theory of delinquent gangs by Richard A Cloward( Book )

4 editions published between 1961 and 1969 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores two questions: (l) Why do delinquent "norms," or rules of conduct, develop? (2) What are the conditions which account for the distinctive content of various systems of delinquent norms- such as those prescribing violence or theft or drug-use? The first question involves a shift in emphasis from the traditional concern of the field-the analysis of delinquent acts or of the careers of individual delinquents. Detailed studies have been undertaken to explain why particular individuals are likely to become delinquent or why delinquent acts of various types are committed with varying frequencies in different social locations. Such studies take as their object of inquiry the careers of individuals or the delinquent act itself rather than the rules of conduct in delinquent gangs that require the commission of delinquent acts. Our emphasis on delinquent norms permits us to raise new questions and to offer new explanations which we believe may have both theoretical and practical significance. The second problem to which this book is devoted is the distinction between pressures toward deviance and the outcome of these pressures. An explanation of the forces that lead individuals to depart from conventional norms does not necessarily explain the form of deviance that will result. There are, for example, several different types of delinquent gang. Whatever problem of adjustment a person may experience, there are several alternative deviant solutions that he might follow. How, then, may we account for the selection and evolution of different adaptations? This is an important problem which has generally been overlooked in previous explanations of delinquency or other modes of deviance. In this book we shall suggest that the milieu in which actors find themselves has a crucial impact upon the types of adaptation which develop in response to pressures toward deviance
