Delinquent Boys

Delinquent Boys: The culture of the gang
Author: Albert K. Cohen
Albert K. Cohen was the first man who attempted to find out the process of beginning of a delinquent subculture. Also, his perspective has been referred to as an integrating theory of several sociological theories such as the Chicago School sociologists’ work, Merton’s strain theory, culture conflict theory, and Sutherland’s differential association theory.
