Worn but still solid hardcover. ; "Prison homosexuality has been a topic of much speculation and very little research. More has been written about this topic than about any other aspect of inmate subculture, but the descriptions and explanations are often contradictory and some of the best information is in unpublished sources. This book summarizes the most important of these writings and shows that many fragmented explanations can be subsumed under more-general social-psychological and criminological theories that new insights into the causes of prison homosexuality. The theoretical controversy about the relative importance of preprison and prison variables was empirically tested in a comparative investigation of three coed and four all-female training schools. These findings are used to create a new explanation of prison homosexuality." ; Ex-Library; xi, 237 pages.
