Delinquent Networks Youth Co Offending

by

Delinquent Networks Youth Co Offending Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book presents a study of co-offending relations among youths under 21 suspected of criminal offenses in Stockholm during 1991-1995. In total, the study includes just over 22,000 individuals suspected of around 29,000 offenses. Jerzy Sarnecki employs the method of network analysis that makes it possible to study the ties, social bonds, interactions, differential associations and connections that are central to many of the sociologically oriented theories on the etiology of crime. Up to now, network analysis had been used only rarely in the criminological context.

Synopsis:

A network analysis of over 22,000 delinquent youths in Stockholm between 1991-5.

Synopsis:
