    I have a question that asks to pick one of the three theories: classism, positivism or sociological theories to explain why, for example, burglaries are committed. I've gone through the theories and don't understand how to link one of these theories to explain someone's actions. Can anyone help? I'd appreciate any answers, just need to understand the question properly. Thank you

    What subject is this for? I'm doing AQA A level sociology, for theories of crime there is;
    Relative deprivation
    Labeling/self fulfilling prophecy
    Strain theory
    Illegitimate opportunity structure
    Status frustration and subculture

    If you want detail on any of these just ask
