Item description for Prisonization: Individual and Institutional Factors Affecting Inmate Conduct (Criminal Justice (LFB Scholarly Publishing LLC)) (Criminal Justice (Lfb Scholarly Publishing Llc).) by Wayne Gillespie...

Prisonization involves the formation of an informal inmate code and develops from both the individual characteristics of inmates and from institutional features of the prison. Its explanation involves indigenous influence theory and cultural drift theory. Gillespie's exploration of these theories is based on data from questionnaires given to over 1,000 prisoners in 30 prisons throughout Kentucky, Tennessee, and Ohio. Institutional data came from sources such as each state's Department of Correction and Rehabilitation. Results indicate that both the individual characteristics of inmates and institutional qualities affect prisonization and misconduct, but the institutional factors are weak predictors of behavior. Individual-level antecedents explained prisonization better than did prison-level variables.

Shameless plug  Dec 17, 2007
This book was my first real attempt at social scientific writing. I'd like to think that my skills have improved since 2001, but I still recommend this book. I took an innovative new statistical method (HLM) and applied it to a classic criminological issue (prisonization).
