1. Assess the extent to which crime figures and trends are influenced by social class, and in particular by common assumptions made about the ‘underclass’.
2. Labelling and subcultural theories see crime and deviance as the outcome of social processes. What are these processes and how convincing are the theoretical accounts of them?
3. Some social groups appear to experience secondary victimisation in which police actions amplify rather than decrease the experience of victimisation. Who is most likely to experience this? Why? What can be done to prevent it?
