The Violent and Victimized in the Male Prison.
Wright, Kevin N.
Journal of Offender Rehabilitation, v16 n3-4 p1-25 1991
Examined violent and victimized male prisoners (n=942). Identified two types of predatory inmates: those having trouble relating to others and those who were assaultive. Victims lacked experience to cope with environment. Both violent and victimized inmates had distinctive personalities, specific environmental needs, and both rated prison setting as worse than did nonviolent or nonvictimized inmates. (Author/NB)
