Thugs and Thieves

Oxford University Press

This chapter provides a systematic summary of findings from the substantive chapters in this book on the topics of intelligence, school, attachment to parents, parental warmth and rejection, child abuse, poverty, community factors, and substance use. In it, we provide recommendations for future research on violent behavior and violent crime, to distinguish its causes from those of nonviolent offending. Highly detailed recommendations for hypothesis tests for each topic (intelligence, executive functions, academic achievement, school bonding, parental attachment, parental warmth, parental rejection, child abuse, poverty, communities, alcohol and drug use) are also outlined.

Keywords:   Violence, Violent Crime, Aggression, Attachment, Parental Warmth, Parental Rejection, Academic Achievement, Child Abuse, Poverty, Communities
