Abstract

The recent development of two paradigms in the social sciences, social capital and the life-course perspective, has proven influential. Though these paradigms overlap, limited research has examined the accumulation of capital over the life-course. In this chapter, we consider the confluence of these paradigms in the context of gang membership; specifically how the onset, continuity, and desistance from gang membership influence the loss and formation of social capital. In addition, the emerging role of technology on the maintenance and creation of social capital for gang members is examined. Lastly, directions for future research explicitly examining social capital in the context of antisocial groups are presented.
