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.
