STRAIN THEORY IN CRIMINOLOGY.


17127. STRAIN THEORY IN CRIMINOLOGY.

This paper provides a brief overview and analysis of strain theory as originally formulated by Robert K. Merton and as modified and expanded by Cloward & Ohlinís work on opportunity theory in subcultures. The analysis also looks at Rosenfeld and Messnerís update of Mertonís anomie theory and their focus on the institutional imbalance of power (with the economy dominating other institutions including family, polity, and education) and the difficulty of addressing the crime problem in the U.S. without making sweeping changes to underlying social institutions. TAGS: crime theory anomie strain robert merton causes crime juvenile delinquency theory criminology. 10 pages; 18 footnotes; 6 bibliographic sources. 2,251 words.
