Alcohol and Crimes of Violence

  • Kai Pernanen


The first problem we encounter in trying to analyze the relationship between alcohol use and crimes of violence is in the choice of a theoretical context. One possibility is to look at violent crime as a subset of deviant behavior and put it in this theoretical sociological context, if one such context is possible. On the other hand, we could look at it from the viewpoint of aggressive behavior in general and see violent crimes as a sample of such behavior, a sample biased in favor of extreme forms of aggressive behavior. I have chosen the latter approach, since a framework limited to sociological variables would leave out central explanatory factors that are not relevant on the aggregate sociological level of analysis. Much of the empirical and theoretical outcomes of research on deviance are applicable in the explanations, but the emphasis will be on the connections with research on aggressive behavior. The relevant sociological factors will be seen only as one set of variables in an explanatory framework that encompasses (and must encompass) research findings from several disciplines.
