A Study in Social Control

Patrick G Clarke, Fordham University


This work is a study in social control. It is concerned with certain aspects of the problem of controlling human behavior by means of positive law. In particular it will focus on a case study, i.e., the attempt to eliminate Oosmunim from labor unions by means of a section of the Rational Labor Relations Act of 1947, known as the Taft-Hartley Act. It will examine this case study in the light of certain hypotheses about social control in order to determine whether the hypotheses advanced in this work is supported or challenged by the case study in question.
