Understanding Youth Crime: An Australian Study

This volume, based on a major Australian research program designed to evaluate the key social factors affecting the lives of young people, contains 11 contributions written by social science researchers, mostly from Australian universities. The first chapter lays out the theory, research methods, and guiding principles of the Sibling Study project, a quasi-experimental study, based on a 65-page self-report questionnaire, designed to allow detailed comparison of the trajectories of serious offenders and non-offenders. Successive chapters address offending behaviors in connection with age and gender; social inequality, alienation, and socio-economic position; family influences and delinquency; urban indigenous young people; and criminality and conformity.
