Prisons as Formal Organizations: Compliance Theory in Action.
Alpert, Geoffrey P.
Sociology and Social Research, v63 n1 p112-30 Oct 1978
Compliance theory applied to prisons is tested via longitudinal analysis of prisoners' attitudes from the time of admittance to a diagnostic and classification center through subsequent transfer to a penitentiary, reformatory, etc. Findings indicate the nonrandom procedure by which prisoners are assigned to institutions is more important than institution type.
