Lotz, Roy; Lee, Leona
Youth & Society, v31 n2 p199-223 Dec 1999
Compares the effects of active sociability and negative school experiences on high school seniors' hedonistic behavior, noting the effects of variables from labeling and control theory. Survey data indicate that active sociability is a strong predictor of delinquent behavior for African American and white teenagers. Negative school experience predicts delinquency only among whites. Labeling and control theories receive tepid support. (SM)
