For this assignment, you need to identify and evaluate two contemporary criminal justice research articles, empirically testing one of the theories subjects: Social disorganization, Social control, Self control or Strain theory. You will read and evaluate the two articles from the same theoretical tradition to compare and contrast their arguments and to synthesize their contributions to the field. Then, write a 5–6 page paper, synthesizing and comparing the arguments of those articles and discussing how they contribute to the selected theoretical tradition.

What are the main conclusions of this study?
What are the strengths and limitations?
What knowledge does this article add to the theoretical tradition that is being studied?
