General Questions (Questions that span Multiple Lectures) 1. Make sure you understand the major distinctions between theories (macro vs. micro, spe- cific vs. general, normative/learning vs. control) and be able to classify the theories you ve learned along these lines. Bear in mind that some theories combine elements of both cate- gories (e.g. normative and control). Which of the strain theories is/are micro and which is/are macro?
2. One question requires you to know the historical and ideological foundations of classical theory (Beccaria), deterrence theory, criminal anthropology, Durkheim s theory of anomie, and Merton s strain theory. In other words, which ideologies do these theories support? Think about each theo- rist and what historical conditions he was concerned about and what, if any, was his political agenda. 3. Know which major categories of crime are not measured on the UCR and NCVS and try explain- ing the omission from a conflict, functionalist, or post-modern perspective.
Intro Lecture: Who What Why and How (1-25) 4. Know whether intent is required for an act to be defined as criminal. Be sure to also read Conklin s discussion of criminal intent in Chapter 1 (p. 4).
6. Part 2 (non-index) offenses on the UCR (How are they measured).
