Show full citation Urbanization, Crime, and Collective Violence in 19th-Century France Abdul Qaiyum Lodhi and Charles Tilly The American Journal of Sociology Vol. 79, No. 2 (Sep. , 1973), pp. 296-318 (article consists of 23 pages) Published by: The University of Chicago Press Stable URL: http://www. jstor. org/stable/2776460 Urbanization, Crime, and Collective Violence in 19th-Century France The American Journal of Sociology © 1973 The University of Chicago Press AbstractThis investigation treates the plausibility of “structural” and “tension” analyses of the relationships among crimes against persons, crimes against property, collective violence, urban population, and urban growth. It treats France during the century after 1830. Over the long run, crimes against property appear to have declined significantly in frequency, crimes against persons fluctuated midly without trend, and collective violence varied shaply from year to year; none of them shows a close correspondence to the pace of urban growth.Cross-sectional comparisons of the 86 French departments at five-year intervals from 1831 to 1861 bring out a strong relationship of property crime to urban population, a highly variable relationship of collective violence to urban population, and no reliable relationship of personal crime to urban population. The relationships with the pace of urban growth in all these regards are weak or nonexistent. There is no detectable association between crime and collective violence.We interpret the weight of the evidence as against tension arguments and toward structural ones. * JSTOR Home * About * Search * Browse * Terms and Conditions * Privacy Policy * Accessibility * Help * Contact us JSTOR is part of ITHAKA, a not-for-profit organization helping the academic community use digital technologies to preserve the scholarly record and to advance research and teaching in sustainable ways. ©2000-2011 ITHAKA.
