Editorial Reviews

Review

"Warr examines key questions concerning the relationship between peer influence and delinquent/criminal behavior. He develops in a systematic and sophisticated fashion concepts and relationships used to explain delinquency.... An excellent bibliography rounds out this valuable contribution. All levels and collections." Choice

Book Description

The idea of peer influence as a cause of delinquency has been around at least since the 1930s, when Edwin Sutherland offered his theory of differential association. Although that theory and similar ones remain popular and have strong empirical support, more recent theories reject the idea of peer influence altogether. This book surveys the research literature on peer influence, shows that most offenders are imbedded in a network of friends and accomplices, and describes numerous possible mechanisms of peer influence.

I had the privilege of being in Dr. Warr's Criminology class and he is simply astonishing. This book is clearly written and presents the statistics in a straightforward manner, which I appreciate. It probably isn't a book I'd just read on my own for pleasure, but it is good as far as textbooks go. But for a truly amazing experience, try to get a seat in one of Dr. Warr's lectures, your life will be forever changed.
