Gottfredson and Hirschi’s (1990) A General Theory of Crime has probably generated more empirical tests in the past ten years than any other criminological theory. Cohn and Farrington (1999) note that A General Theory of Crime was the second most cited work of all criminological books in the 1990s. So popular and controversial has this theory become that it is rare to open an issue of Criminology or Justice Quarterly and not observe an empirical demonstration of this work. Indeed, the volume of empirical tests of this theory were sufficient enough a few years ago to facilitate a meta-analysis of the empirical status of the theory (Pratt and Cullen, 2000).
