  Any deviations in this group occur within the permissible limits. "Delinquent boys", by turn, represent the socioeconomic bottom of the society, who spend their lives on the streets, starting street fights, stealing, and eventually creating juvenile gangs able to commit federal crimes. The material in the book is logically divided into the accumulation of the general background of causation as represented in the individual — his emo-tional life, his personality, and his relationship to his milieu, the treatment accorded him and his family, and, finally, the practical implications of the find-ings.

and severe personality deviations were frequently observed. There was "clear evidence" that 91 percent of the delinquents were emotionally dis-turbed and unhappy as against 13 percent of the control group. Their misconduct was interpreted as symptomatic of more or less basic emo-tional and social maladjustments.

This article reviews research on the personal characteristics of youth that predispose to crime, focusing on the biosocial origins of antisocial behavior. A significant empirical base suggests that certain biological characteristics interact with environmental risk factors to produce higher rates of delinquency.

This theme is explored in reviewing research within the domains of genetics. effect of delinquent peers is greatest when: all of the adolescent's friends are delinquent-when the adolescent's friends form a cohesive group-when these friends hold beliefs conducive to delinquency, approve of the adolescent's delinquency, and pressure the adolescent to engage in delinquency-greater for certain offenses like drug use.
