Masculinity, Morality and Offending in Scotland and Denmark
In the next three chapters, I move the focus of attention across the Atlantic from the USA to northern Europe. Continuing with the prominent focus of the book, I firstly draw upon a comparative perspective to explore and examine the issues relating to gangs and masculinity in Scotland and Denmark, highlighting the key similarities and differences. In the following two chapters I then move on to explore the perceived impact of religious-oriented and ascetic-spiritual interventions in terms of supporting small samples of male offenders in both countries to begin to move away from embracing violent and criminal identities.
