Control as Object: Evidence for the Symbolic Interactionist Model

  • Jan E. Stets


Chapter 5 presented a symbolic interactionist view of the relationship between violence and control. The model was presented to explain how violence can have both uncontrollable and controllable elements. This chapter provides detailed evidence from the data on how the model operates. Before presenting the findings, several preliminary remarks need to be made. These include clarifying what the model represents, discussing the shortcomings of the data, and identifying the subset of data that is used in the findings.
