Ph.D., Chicago, 1951
Areas of Research Interest:
Criminology & Delinquency, Sociology of Risk.
Current Research Interests:
With Lorine A. Hughes, I continue my interests in violence and violence avoidance. By reanalyzing field observational data from our Chicago gang project, the focus of this work is on situational factors and group processes that are associated with alternative behavioral outcomes. We hope to be able to compare findings from the original research with current research being conducted in Chicago and elsewhere.
