Paul E. Bellair (Ph.D. State University of New York-Albany, 1995) is Professor of Sociology. His research examines the relationship between macro-micro linkages in explaining delinquency, the relationship between community characteristics and crime, racial-ethnic differences in violence, and interconnections among neighborhood disadvantage, gangs, and violence. He is currently conducting a study of prisoners that seeks to explore the detailed life circumstances that precede incarceration and conditions that affect recidivism upon re-entering the community.
