dc.description.abstractThis thesis covers the progress of anomie theory from Durkheim to Messner and Rosenfeld' s recent institutional anomie theory. The contributions of Merton, Cohen, Cloward and Ohlin, and Agnew are detailed as well. It is demonstrated that current anomie theory serves as both a micro- and a macro-level sociogenic explanation for crime. Finally, empirical comparisons of relevant institutions according to institutional anomie theory are provided in an effort to support Messner and Rosenfeld's theory.
