In a very general sense chapters, four and five examine crime and criminality from a more individual perspective. Chapter six focuses outside the individual, specifically the individual's economic reality.


As a way to understand this perspective . In bullet/outline format, summarize each of the branches (1. social disorganization, 2. strain theory, and 3. cultural deviance theory)within this social structure perspective. Make sure to summarize, don't over-explain. You can include direct quotes from the text or paraphrased material, including key terms or theorists when applicable. This assignment should not be longer than 2 pages, think about half-page or so for each perspective.

I attach the book in the file from chapter 4-6 but mostly from 6 for this assignment

While living on Jerome Avenue and attending City College of New York in the 1960s, he was swept up in the social and political currents of the time. He became intrigued with the infl uence contemporary culture had on individual behavior: Did people shape society or did society shape people? He applied his interest in social forces and human behavior to the study of crime and justice. After graduating CCNY, he attended the newly opened program in criminal justice at the State University of New York at Albany, earning both his M.A. and Ph.D. degrees there. After completing his graduate work, Dr. Siegel began his teaching career at North- eastern University, where he was a faculty member for nine years. After leaving Northeastern, he held teaching positions at the University of Nebraska–Omaha and Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire. He is currently a professor at the University of Massachusetts–Lowell. Dr. Siegel has written extensively in the area of crime and justice, including books on juvenile law, delinquency, criminology, criminal justice, and criminal procedure. He is a court certifi ed expert on police conduct and has testifi ed in numerous legal cases. The father of four and grandfather of three, Larry Siegel and his wife, Terry, now reside in Bedford, New Hampshire, with their two dogs, Watson and Cody.

The social structure perspective within criminology offers valuable insights into the relationship between societal conditions and criminal behavior. This theoretical framework comprises three key branches: social disorganization theory, strain theory, and cultural deviance theory. These branches collectively emphasize the impact of social and environmental factors on shaping criminal conduct, shedding light on the significance of neighborhood conditions, economic disparities, and cultural influences in understanding why individuals engage in criminal activities.
Social Disorganization Theory

· Deteriorated areas lead to breakdown of social institutions (family, schools, etc.).
· Factors contributing to social disorganization: high unemployment, school dropout rates, inadequate housing, and weak social control.
· Residents' disinterest in community matters due to a desire to leave destabilizes neighborhoods.
