In the first half of this class, we have discussed Gottfredson and Hirschi’s general theory of
crime as well as Tom Tyler’s explanation for why people obey the law. At first glance, these
two pieces of scholarship may seem very different and somewhat incompatible. Upon further
reflection, there are a number of ways that these two perspectives could be integrated together.
Describe how these two perspectives could be unified. In so doing, be sure to provide specific
examples on how to link the two together. At the same time, feel free to point out and discuss
areas of each perspective that cannot be integrated. While this question provides you with much
leeway in terms of how you want to answer it, all statements must be supported by published
research.
