Voices of the Banished

Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses how banishment impacts upon the banished. It uses the data gathered from interviews of people who find themselves banished from most of the areas in Seattle. It studies if and how people change their patterns due to banishment, how their exclusions and restrictions affect their lives, and how they understand the use of social control techniques meant to control their mobility. The chapter determines that those who have been banished have increased social marginality that is strictly disciplinary instead of therapeutic.

Keywords: banished; pattern changes; social control techniques; mobility; social marginality
