Becoming a Freak: Pathways into the Counter-Culture
Wieder, Rence; Zmmmerman, Don H.
Youth and Society, 7, 3, 311-344, Mar 76
Drawing on a year long ethnographic study of a middle sized university community, this paper views entry into the counter culture as a process of self-transformation bearing similarity to therapeutic practices; major personal change strategies involve desocialization from conventional culture and from major social institutions--thus affording individuals freedom and spontaneity.
