"Delinquency in a Birth Cohort is a turning point in criminological research in the United States," writes Norval Morris in his foreword. "What has been completely lacking until this book is an analysis of delinquency in a substantial cohort of youths, the cohort being defined other than by their contact with any part of the criminal justice system."Cited by: Theoretical Foundations of Crime and Delinquency Chapter 3 explains the difference between theory and hypothesis and why this is important to the study of juvenile delinquency. The chapter also introduces three ways of thinking about crime and delinquency: the classical school, the positivist school, and spiritual explanations.
