Show Summary Details


This chapter uses David Farrington’s Cambridge Study in Delinquent Development as an example of a study that has generated hundreds of papers and several books relevant to criminal career research. It contrasts these findings with a discussion of contentious and unresolved substantive, theoretical, and methodological issues in criminal career research and provides pointers to areas in which future research is likely to pay off.

Keywords: Cambridge Study in Delinquent Development; criminal career research; David Farrington
