Clarke, Edward J. (ed.).2008.Deviant Behavior: A Text-Reader in the Sociology of Deviance.Seventh Edition. New York: Worth Publishers

33.The Moral Career of the Mental Patient, Erving Goffman

34. Suspended Identity: Identity Transformation in a Maximum Security Prison, Thomas J. Schmid, Richard S. Jones

35. The Social Organization of Deviants, Joel Best, David F. Luckenbill

36. Managing the Action: Sports Bookmakers as Entrepreneurs, Phyllis Coontz

Answer two questions:

1. Describe Goffman’s “moral career of the mental patient” through its three phases. How is the patient’s self-identity thus gradually redefined in the context of the hospital as a total institution.

2. Summarize the Schmid and Jones suspended identity dialectic as graphically illustrated in Figure 2 (p. 507). How does this model of identity transformation differ from that associated with brainwashing or conversion?

3. List and discuss Best and Luckenbill’s five propositions for the sophistication of deviant organizations.

P.S. I have a few more assignments that I will allow more time to complete. This assignment caught me off guard. I always tip
