Political Response to New Skills: The Conforming and the Deviant
Jaros, Dean
Social Science Quarterly, 51, 3, 552-560, Dec 70
Anomie theory holds that the provision of new resources and skills to an inarticulate and non-participatory population can produce two distinct responses: increased conformity or increased and more efficient use of deviant methods. Data on vocational education students suggest that there is such a differential reaction to formal training in the area of political participation. (Author/MB)
