Race, Commitment to Deviance, and Spoiled Identity
Harris, Anthony R.
American Sociological Review, 41, 3, 432-441, Jun 76
Data generated by 234 young black and white inmates in 1971 challenge the assumption that spoiled identity is a necessary, socially invariant outcome of deviant commitment and self-definition. For blacks, the relationship between criminal self-typing and stability and esteem is negative but inconsequential; for whites, the relationship is negative and significant. (Author/JM)
