have such maturity and ability to handle all this tactfully. Their minds become criminal and violent as they want to fight this injustice. Radical Criminology According to this theory, delinquency and criminality amongst juveniles is caused by the socioeconomic, political and ideological makeup of the society. Proponents of this approach argue that due to unequal distribution of wealth and power, those juveniles whose families are abandoned from economically and politically are more prone to and will continue to have criminal minds and resentment against the prevailing order. This is a theory that was formed in the 1960s and 1970s. Although this theory seems to be quite applicable to the society, but these days its application falls short of facts as the society has changed. Its basic principles are true but conflicts occur in a lesser number for the same reason in the modern society. This is the only limitation to the theory otherwise it is quite just (Martin; 2005).

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
