Left Realism


This overview of Lea and Young's Left Realist approach to crime and deviance outlines a number of their observations in terms of:

 

1. Offender profiles: The criminogenic triangle (relative deprivation, marginalisation and subculture).


2. Victim profiles


3. The square of crime (formal control, informal control, offender and victim)

 

A final section provides a brief evaluation of Left Realism.
