An Application of Compliance Theory to the Study of Juvenile Delinquency
Thomas, Charles W.; And Others
Sociology and Social Research, 61, 2, 156-75, Jan 77
Employing Amitai Etzioni's compliance theory as a theoretical model, this study evaluates application of Etzioni's theory to the influence of public schools on juvenile delinquency, suggesting that the schools exercise sufficient coercive power to evoke alienative involvement among their students and an increasing probability of student involvement in delinquency.
