Assistant Professor, Department of Sociology, University of Minnesota.

Over the past decade, some Western countries have begun to re-embrace the language of rehabilitation and calls for penal moderation. Risk logics-which undergirded the rise of mass incarceration in the U.S. Read More

Legal Cynicism and Parental Appraisals of Adolescent Violence.

Br J Criminol 2014 Jul;54(4):568-591

Research suggests that legal cynicism-a cultural frame in which the law is viewed as illegitimate and ineffective-encourages violence to maintain personal safety when legal recourse is unreliable. But no study has tested the impact of legal cynicism on appraisals of violence. Drawing from symbolic interaction theory and cultural sociology, we tested whether neighbourhood legal cynicism alters the extent to which parents appraise their children's violence as indicative of aggressive or impulsive temperaments using data from the Project on Human Development in Chicago Neighborhoods.

THE PATH AND PROMISE OF FATHERHOOD FOR GANG MEMBERS.

Br J Criminol 2009 ;49(3):305-325

While an increase in research on criminal desistance has occurred in recent years, little research has been applied to the gang field. Using qualitative interview data, this article examines fatherhood as a potential turning point in the lives of 91 gang members in the San Francisco Bay Area. Fatherhood initiated important subjective and affective transformations that led to changes in outlook, priorities and future orientation. Read More

Social change, institutional anomie, and serious property crime in transitional Russia.

Br J Criminol 2005 Jan;45(1):81-97

Dong-Eui University, Department of Police Science, 995 Eomgwangno, Busanjin-gu, Busan 614-774, Korea,

This study examined socioeconomic change, social institutions, and serious property crime in transitional Russia. Durkheim's anomie theory and recent research on violence in Russia led us to expect an association between negative socioeconomic change and property crime. Based upon institutional anomie theory, we also tested the hypothesis that the association between change and crime is conditioned by the strength of non-economic social institutions. Read More

Change and Stability in the Characteristics of Homicide Victims, Offenders and Incidents During Rapid Social Change.

Br J Criminol 2007 Mar;47(2):331-345

William Alex Pridemore, PhD, Indiana University, Department of Criminal Justice, 302 Sycamore Hall, Bloomington, IN 47405, USA;

The Russian homicide rate doubled during the 1990s and is now among the highest in the world. During this same period, Russian citizens experienced swift, widespread, and meaningful political, economic, and social change. It is likely that this profound transition altered structural conditions, cultural norms, and interpersonal relations in a way that led to changes in the nature of interpersonal violence. Read More
