The Established and the Outsiders

A Sociological Enquiry Into Community Problems

by Elias, Norbert; Scotson, John L;

A local community study of tense relations between an established group and outsiders becomes a microcosm that illuminates a range of sociological configurations. The Established and the Outsiders examines the mechanisms of stigmatization, monopolization of power, collective fantasy and `we' and `they' images which support and reinforce divisions in society.
