This concluding chapter begins by discussing how many of the young men's situations changed over the course of the study, and in some cases changed considerably, with some of The Boys now showing signs of desistance. Although they continued to spend time with one another, towards the latter part of the study some were doing so less frequently. This was almost certainly because of certain lifecycle events, such as getting married or starting a family, which impacted significantly on their outlook on life and which was now seeing behaviours slowly changing. Several of The Boys were also exploring the idea of starting up in business, as they now saw business as a way of making money legally without having to constantly look over their shoulders to see if the police were on their case.

Keywords:   The Boys, desistance, lifecycle events, marriage, family, business, legal money
