Towards an Understanding of Power Relationships in Institutional Abuse.
Jones, Jocelyn
Early Child Development and Care, v100 p69-76 1994
Uses Max Weber's ideas of domination to analyze the authority structure in an English private boy's school where physical and sexual abuse were perpetrated by the school's principal and owner. Discusses how domination was constructed and maintained, how victims were selected, and how relations outside the school were managed. Suggests current rational-legal methods for prevention are doomed to fail. (TM)
