Focus on the following three dimensions of the respective theories when making comparisons:

2. Cause(s) of Crime
3. Policy Suggestions
In your essay you are expected to put these three theories ( In the topic description above) in dialogue with Hirschi’s Social Control Theory. For example, when comparing Hirschi’s Social Control Theory with Merton’s Theory of Crime, you should pay attention to how Hirschi would evaluate Merton’s theory and how Merton, in return, would evaluate Hirschi’s. What is missing from or wrong with Merton’s Theory from a Social Control Theory perspective? What is missing from or wrong with Social Control Theory from a Strain Theory perspective? Etc.
