Rebellion in a High School.
Stinchcombe, Arthur L.
The premise of this book is that high school rebellion is an "expression of alienation from socially present authorities." Such rebellion is a manifestation of "expressive alienation" and has the quality of hatred or sullenness. Rebellious high school students are likely to be non-utilitarian, negativistic, hedonistic, and to stress group autonomy. This kind of alienation is traceable to the social structure of the school. Chapters in the volume deal with the psychological quality of adolescent rebellion, the labor market and rebellion, adolescent claims to adult status, and the pressure to succeed or to rebel. The research in support of this interpretation was done in a California high school in a logging and sawmill town. Data were collected by schedules administered by teachers in social studies classes.
