Intergenerational Transmission of Crime
A few days ago in class we discussed the intergenerational transmission of crime. I was not able to get into as much detail as I would have liked due to time restrictions and our use of a textbook, but I wanted to provide additional reading materials for those interested in this topic. These could be useful sources if you need to write a research paper on this topic or just have a genuine interest in the topic.
- Family factors in the intergenerational transmission of offending (Farrington, Coid, & Murray, 2009)
- Intergenerational transmission of criminal behaviour: Conviction trajectories of fathers and their children (Besemer & Farrington, 2012)
