refers to the processes by which individuals acquire the knowledge, skills, and dispositions that make them more or less able members of their society. It is apparent that the socialization experienced by a person in childhood cannot prepare him for all the roles he will be expected to fill in later years. Not only do persons move through a sequence of different positions in society, in accord with different stages of the life cycle, but also changes in the demands upon them arise from their mobility, both geographical and social, and from changes in the customs of their society which may occur during their lifetime. A half-century of important research on socialization of the child has described the development of children's personalities and social behavior; there has been much less work, virtually none in comparison, on socialization at later stages of the life cycle. Moreover, neither those studying child socialization nor those studying adult socialization realize the full extent of the similarity of their research interests and of their concepts and procedures. To stimulate interest in their mutual concerns and to provide for exchange of ideas the Council's Committee on Socialization and Social Structure sponsored a Conference on Socialization through the Life Cycle, in New York on May 17-19,

1963. The participants in the conference were social scientists who were studying socialization into different roles and social institutions from childhood to old age. 1 The conference was viewed as exploratory in nature, with the hope that the participants would leave with some new concepts and plans for research. The objective was not to develop a common point of view or to produce a report, but rather to speculate, to try to identify topics warranting further study, and generally to open up the field of inquiry rather than to partition it into areas. One can say in considering the outcomes of the conference that it succeeded to some extent in narrowing the gaps between students of child development and students of adult socialization. The latter were interested primarily in the acquisition of roles by members of society, and in the conditions under which roles are effectively taught; they were less concerned with the actual learn1 The authors of papers presented at the conference and their sub· jects were (in order of presentation): Irving Rosow, Western Reserve University, "Forms and Functions of Adult Socialization"; Howard S.

ing mechanisms involved in the acquisition of such roles. In contrast, the participants from the field of child research were more concerned with the development of personality traits, such as aggression or achievement, than with the learning of roles, and they were interested in the mechanisms by which the traits are acquired. Since the majority of the participants were interested in adult socialization, the trend in the discussion was in the direction of their interests. For the members of this particular group the conference was highly successful in that it brought most of them together to discuss their work for the first time, and it helped to identify a field of social science research which up to now has been somewhat amorphous. In the course of the discussion there emerged general themes which spanned the different life-cycle stages, rather than being specific to anyone. In the paragraphs which follow only a sampling of the themes developed by the conference can be given. A more complete analysis of the contributions made by the conference is being prepared by the author in an expansion of the background paper he wrote for the conference. 2 FORMALITY OF THE RELATIONSHIP IN SOCIALIZATION A major theme was the relationship of the person undergoing socialization to the socializing agent or agency, and how this relationship may change through the life cycle. The first important aspect which was developed concerned the degree of formality or "institutionalization" of the relationship. One way of approaching the assessment of formality is to inquire into the nature of the roles regulating the interpersonal relationships. First, it is important that the person being socialized usually has a well-prescribed role as a learner. In many instances being socialized requires one to take a specified role; one takes a role to learn a role, so to speak. In the teacher-pupil and the parent路 child relationships the broad and dominant purpose is the physical care and training of the child so that he may become a socially suitable member of society. Socialization at later age levels quite often does not require the individual to take the role of one being socialized. There are exceptions, as in an occupational apprenticeship, or where prior socialization has been inadequate or wrong and the individual is required to go through a resocialization process in a specified role, for example, in a correctional institution. Nevertheless, socialization into marital roles of husbands by wives, or vice versa, the socialization of the adult into the role of 2 Socialization Through the Life Cycle, to he puhlished by Russell Sage Foundation in September 1964.
the parent by the child, the socialization into most types of work, the gradual shifts into the old-age role-these and many others do not require the person being socialized to take a formally specified role of a learner. Talmon pointed out that there is another sense in which a socialization relationship may be formal, depending on whether the socializing agent or agency constitutes or represents a formal organization, such as an Army unit, a school, or a corporation, or is instead an informal primary group, such as the family or a friendship group. These two components of formality provide a fourfold classification: formal organization, role of learner specified; informal organization, role similarly specified; formal organization, role of learner not specified; informal organization, role of learner not specified. From the stage early in the life cycle when the organization is formal and the role of learner is specified, perhaps the best example is the student. Examples from later stages of life are the training of the new military recruit, or systematic "on the job" training for an occupation. Talmon pointed out that even within formal organizations with specified socialization roles, much of the socialization still occurs through informal processes, outside of the specified roles. Studies have made clear that the primary group often is the main agency of socialization within these formal institutions. Thus while training may be acquired in a well-defined role, a great deal of indirect, unplanned training takes place through informal discussion and perhaps unconscious identification with role models. In the case where the organization is formal but the role of learner is not specified, the person has to learn as best he can through observation, gleaning information here and there. Where the socialization agency is an informal group but the leamer's role has been prescribed, the child in his family is the archetype. Finally, the case where the agency is informal and no role is specified is exemplified by peer-group socialization, as of the child in his neighborhood, and by adult socialization into a new social class or community status, or into a wider family circle through marriage. The comparison of socialization at various stages suggests differences of many kinds, but the most striking is that much of adult socialization takes place in formal organizations without a clearly specified role for the leamer, while the child, in sharp contrast, is socialized by informal groups in which he has a well-defined learner's role. Much adult socialization thus is allowed to proceed through trial-and-error learning; but for children the process is regulated by specification of rights and duties, and provides opportunities for supervision and guidance to help shape the appropriate responses, and protected occasions for practice without punishment. 2
GROUP CONTEXT OF THE PERSON BEING SOCIALIZED
junctive passages through the process. An only child in a family continues in an individual disjunctive relationship (the eldest child in a family remains in that relationship for only a year or more). More frequently a child is one of a series passing through the process as an individual. Still, if the children are close in age and interaction is encouraged, then the children themselves may develop a close group relationship and their situation could be described as one of collective disjunctive socialization. In the other major institution of childhood, namely, the school, children are socialized in what is clearly a collective serial relationship. Each of these situations has consequences for the socialization process. Older children in families may pass on to the younger learned ways of "getting around the parents" or, on the other hand, may be active agents of socialization under the monitoring of their parents. Where the children are close in age and act as a group, their solidarity may enable them to influence the course of parental practices. So is it also with children in school, although it is unlikely that children in the early grades ever develop as effective means of influencing procedures as do their seniors in high school or college. It is clear that in the later stages of the life cycle we also find the individual in a variety of socialization contexts. In some instances he is alone and in a unique relationship; this characterizes the mutual socialization of spouses in marriage. But in other cases, for example, when a person enters the military system, or becomes a member of a church, or joins a social club, the relationship is that of a member of a collectivity and usually of a serial nature. Thus one finds little systematic change from one type of relationship to another in socialization through the life span. There may be some regular and predictable combination of life-cycle stage and type of institution, and an effort to chart the different contexts is to be desired. At the very least, the analysis of socialization settings provides a guide to understanding what takes place in specific cases.
Another aspect of the relationship with the socializing agent is whether the person is being socialized alone or as a member of a group, in other words, whether his relationship to the socializing agent is that of an individual or a member of a collectivity. Becker introduced this conceptual distinction in his paper, and in the discussion Wheeler added a related distinction. He asked whether the person or group being socialized is one of a series, passing through the socializing agency in succession, or whether the individual or group is one of a kind -whether the process is, in Wheeler's term, "disjunctive." When these two conceptual distinctions are employed together another fourfold classification of relationships results: First there is the individual disjunctive relationship held, for example, by the only child in a family; next there is the individual serial relationship, for example, that of president-elect of a national organization where change of office takes place every year; third, the collective disjunctive instance, which is relatively rare but is exemplified by the one-time summer camp or a summer training institute; and fourth, the collective serial relationship, a familiar instance being that of a freshman class at college. The last type is the one that contains the idea of a "generation" of individuals being socialized. These various types of relationships may influence the outcome of socialization by engendering resistance to or subversion of the socializing process. In the distinction between individual and collectivity, the significant point is the extent to which the collectivity can develop unity, develop a sense of group identity and a power to act (what Becker calls "cohort solidarity"), and hence influence the socializing agent's objectives and techniques by organizing resistance of some kind. In the distinction between the serial and the disjunctive situation, the significant point is that the individual may have been preceded by others who can enlighten him in informal ways concerning the socialization setting. The participants in a socialization sequence, or persons who have graduated, may pass on information to the newer members which enables them to manipulate in their own interest the socializing agent or agency, and hence to interfere with the planned process. What changes may there be in these aspects of the socialization relationship from one stage of the life cycle to another? A review of the varying contexts makes it evident at once that there are no regular systematic changes. Consider the situation of the child. The primary socialization of early life occurs in contexts which vary from individual to group relationships, and from serial to dis-
POWER AND SUPPORT IN THE SOCIALIZATION RELATIONSHIP Still another aspect of the relationship between persons and their socializing agents can be referred to as its quality. An analysis of the pertinent characteristics of relative power and support was presented to the conference by Straus. Many methods of describing the parentchild relationship have been used, and in the past two decades a number of factor analyses, intended to reduce the various descriptions to their common elements, have shown that power and affectivity are the two major 3
values. Adult socialization probably requires a relationship resembling that of childhood to effect equivalent changes in basic values through socialization. This relationship may occur in rare and usually noninstitutionalized settings, for example, in adult religious conversion, in which the submissive relationship and high affective interchange with a religious figure underlie the radical shift in the adult's value system. Another example is the extreme relationship in prisoner-of-war camps. Recent research on "brainwashing" and the breakdown of resistance to enemy values shows this context to be one in which the captors use their extreme power in deliberate manipulation of the whole range of affect from rejection and hate, on the one hand, to support and overt sympathy, on the other, thus bringing the prisoner into a position similar to that of a child with his parent. It follows that if society is to undertake basic resocialization of adults in respect to motives and values, it might well institutionalize in some form the high power and affectivity relationship characteristic of childhood learning.
dimensions underlying the various ways of describing relationships. This empirical discovery points to the importance of these two dimensions. The first indicates the degree to which the socializing agent-the parent in these particular studies-exerts dominance or authority in his relationship to his child, as against being permissive or democratic, or in some cases submissive. The second indicates the degree to which there is a highly affective relationship between the parent and child, in contrast with one of low affectivity or "affective neutrality," to use Parsons' term. The affectivity, of course, can range in direction from positive to negative, from love to hate; it is the amount of affectivity which is the issue. The relevant studies of adult interaction unfortunately have not dealt with socialization as might be done in a study of interaction between recruits and drill sergeants in a military setting, or in a study of interaction of a newly married couple. Instead, the studies have analyzed the interaction of small ad hoc groups in such processes as leadership development and problem solving. N evertheless, the factor analyses of the data on interaction between these adults also reveal the characteristics of power and affectivity as two basic dimensions, and it is likely that they would apply also to the adult socialization relationship. Use of these two dimensions in a fourfold classification will serve to identify different types of relationships. In this way interpersonal situations can be contrasted. In the case of childhood, a parent who rejects his child and is dominant can be contrasted with one who loves his child and is easygoing and permissive. In adulthood, the conditions under which an occupation is being learned in one instance may involve little affectivity or difference in power, while in others the situation may involve considerable exercise of authority of the agent over the trainee, with more feelings becoming involved. The major contrast is between child and adult socialization relationships. It seems evident that the child is socialized in a context of high affectivity and of high power, and that the adult is socialized in a sharply contrasting situation of affective neutrality and little power differentiation. Straus pointed out in his paper that the "high power," "high support" (or positive affect) relationship leads to the acquisition by children of deep-seated motives and values. Other investigators, theorizing about internalization and identification, i.e., the acquisition by the child of the basic parental and cultural values, also u,Sually assume that it is in the environment in which the affective rewards and punishments are large and the socializing agent has considerable power that the fundamental components of personality are laid down. The adult socialization context cannot be so characterized, and is not conducive to the inculcation of basic
CONTENT OF SOCIALIZATION THROUGH THE LIFE CYCLE Another of the fundamental themes developed at the conference was that changes occur in the content of socialization at different stages in the life cycle. Rosow opened the discussion of this topic by analyzing the relative emphasis in socialization on values and overt behavior. The ensuing comments and resulting conceptual development may perhaps best be summarized in the following terms: First, we note three things a person requires before he is able to perform satisfactorily in a social role. He must know what is expected of him (both in behavior and in values), must be able to meet the role requirements, and must desire to practice the behavior and pursue the appropriate ends. It can be said that the purposes of socialization are to give a person knowledge, ability, and motivation. A simple cross-classification of these three concepts with values and behavior establishes a paradigm which is useful in the analysis of changes in the content of socialization through the life cycle. In this paradigm six cells are indicated by letters for simplicity of reference: Knowledge Ability Motivation
Behavior A C E
Values B D
Cells A and B indicate respectively that the individual knows what behavior is expected of him, and what ends he should pursue; E and F indicate that the individual is motivated to behave in the appropriate ways, and to pursue the designated values; cells C and D indicate that the 4
the individual has serious conflicts within himself, but does his best, therapeutic procedures are instituted to solve this problem, which lies in cell D. It is only in the last analysis, when other possible types of deficiencies in socialization have been ruled out, that it is assumed there is a problem in motivation toward the appropriate values, that is, that the case is represented by cell F. Such cases may be disaffected by or divorced from the value system of their society; in our country they may be pacifists, or Communists, or members of other groups which reject the traditional American values. Sometimes resocialization efforts are launched in such cases, but more often retraining of these individuals is considered to be too much of a task, and they are jailed, or ignored, or relegated to marginal, inconsequential positions. In general, then, socialization after childhood deals primarily with the overt behavior in the role and makes little attempt to influence motivation of a fundamental kind, or to influence basic values. Society is willing to spend much less time in redirecting the motivation and values of adults than of children; in the case of the latter it is understood that this is a necessary task of the institutions involved, such as the family, and they are organized to carry out this task. Why should this difference exist? Probably it stems directly from the limitations on learning in later life, which make impractical any attempt at thorough resocialization. Rosow asked in his paper whether adult socialization can in fact generate suitable beliefs and attitudes, suitable motivation for certain types of performance, or whether the limitations on learning are such that the socializing agent must deal with overt performance only. It may be that the costs are too high, and it simply is not efficient from society's point of view to spend too much time on teaching an old dog new tricks. Perhaps an intensive and costly resocialization effort can be made for adults only when the need for a certain kind of manpower is very great and the question of efficiency becomes secondary to the need for personnel.
individual is able to carry out the behavior, and is able to hold appropriate values. (The question of being able or unable to hold values may at first seem somewhat peâ&#x20AC;˘ culiar, but the inability involved here arises from conflict . , within the personality.) With respect to changes during the life cycle, the emphasis in socialization moves from motivation to ability and knowledge, and from a concern with values to a concern with behavior. The highest priority in infant socialization, which is represented by cell F J is to transform the basic drives of the infant into secondary desires for human values and finally to more specific cultural values. Early-life socialization thus emphasizes the control of primary drives, while socialization in later stages deals with secondary or learned motives generated by the expectations of "significant others." Except in rare and extreme conditions, adult socialization does not need to teach the individual to control and regulate the gratification of primary drive systems. The usual concern of adult socialization is represented by cell A. Society assumes that the adult knows the values to be pursued in different roles, that he wants to pursue them with the socially appropriate means, and that all that might remain to be done is to teach him what to do. This is illustrated by the case of a military recruit. The training program starts at about the level of "this is a _gun" and "this is how it is fired." If there are some things the individual is unable to do (cell C), the training program seeks to upgrade his ability, for example, by instruction designed to reduce illiteracy. If he is unwilling to carry out his various tasks (cell E), then motivational training occurs through administration of special rewards and punishments. If it appears that education about values is needed (cell B), the individual is enrolled in a general orientation course on American values and on the purpose of its wars; the "why we fight" training programs are instituted to provide an understanding of the appropriate ends to be sought.

countries and international comparisons among countries. Analysis of experience over a long stretch of time, it is hoped, will help identify the forces that shaped that experience both in the postwar period and in earlier years. The results may also indicate the extent to which the experience of the postwar period was the reflection of transient circumstances rather than persistent forces and so provide a firmer basis for national policies bearing on growth. Work has been started under this program on a number of parallel studies in particular countries. These studies will describe and interpret the postwar economic experience in each country in the light of its record in earlier periods. Changes over time therefore are the principal subject of these investigations. As their results become available, a comparison of experience in the various countries will be undertaken, in order to clarify the causal influences revealed. This study will also serve as a general summary of the results of the program. Six studies in selected countries-France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States -have been organized. If possible a seventh study, of one of the smaller European countries, will also be undertaken. The principal investigators are:
United Kingdom R. C. O. Matthews and C. H. Feinstein, both of the University of Cambridge
United States Moses Abramovitz and Paul A. David, both of Stanford University.
The joint directors of the project, Messrs. Kuznets and Abramovitz, will also be in charge of the comparative study which is to follow completion of the separate studies. A small group of advisers is being organized to assist the directors and to review the work of the various participants. M. Charles Gruson, Director of the Institut National de la Statistique et des Etudes Economiques, James Tobin of Yale University, and Robert Solow of Massachusetts Institute of Technology have agreed to serve as advisers. A first meeting of the participants in the studies was held at the National Institute of Economic and Social Research, London, on January 9-11, 1964. This conference reviewed preliminary papers surveying the growth records of the various countries, considered the statistical materials available for study, and discussed the plans of each group for pursuing its work. Plans were laid for a minimal collection of statistical series for each country, covering production, supplies of labor and capital, pro- _ ductivity of resources, saving, income distribution, the elements of expenditure, and international flows of goods and capital. Major portions of the work are scheduled to be completed in the course of 1964, and a second conference of participants is to meet in the spring of 1965.

USE OF SURVEY METHODS IN THE STUDY OF POLITICAL MODERNIZATION: REPORT OF A CONFERENCE by Sidney Verba •
A SMALL and informal conference was held in New York on May 10-11, 1963, under the auspices of the Council's Committee on Comparative Politics, to consider uses of survey methods in research on political modernization. The participants were chosen for their interest in prob-
lems of political modernization as well as their extensive experience in survey research. The conference was planned not only for exchange of information as to the kinds of studies that have been made with survey techniques in the developing nations and discussion of the

important subcultures, with localities undergoing change at varying rates. If surveys are to obtain information on the interaction of elite and other groups-as any study of the implications of the "revolution of rising frustrations" must-study designs will have to provide for obtaining data from varying social levels. Specific social groups on which one could concentrate were suggested also. These included strategic voluntary associations and university and secondary school students. It was also thought that the development of techniques of studying social structure and patterns of interaction within the framework of survey research would be worth while. Much time was devoted to discussion of how to coordinate the many studies that are currently being undertaken and planned for the future so that the results will be more cumulative. Replication is a major need in any set of studies of modernization, in order to test hypotheses in new contexts and over time. Discussion of this point led to consideration of the organizational problems of survey research on modernization and the role that the Committee on Comparative Politics might play in this area. There are several ways in which greater coordination of studies of political modernization could be brought about. One approach would be to arrange for more cross-national coordination of all kinds of studies, ranging from those in which major intellectual control is exercised by one central director to cooperative ventures in which research teams with similar technical skills, working in several nations, agree to coordinate their surveys and make every effort to obtain comparable results. Another way in which to increase the cumulativeness of survey research is through an emphasis in new studies on the replication of parts of earlier studies. Much of this kind of coordination might depend on adequate channels of communication so that scholars working in this general area could be kept informed of the work of others. This suggests the importance of development of adequate archives of previous survey data, as well as of survey instruments. It was the general consensus of the members of the Committee on Comparative Politics that it could not either assume the role of coordinator of specific survey research projects or manage archives of survey research. Both undertakings require a more permanent organizational structure and substantial financing; the conference discussions indicated that several such efforts are under way. A group such as the committee is better able to encourage the incorporation of survey techniques into other kinds of research on problems of modernization. By facilitating the kinds of exchanges that took place in the conference, the committee could hope to increase the contributions of survey research to the cumulative understanding of problems of social change.
direction that research of this sort might profitably take, but also to assist the committee in planning future activities. The following memoranda were prepared for the conference: "Some Nonpolitical Avenues for Approaching a Study of Political Modernization," by Robert O. Carlson; "Periodic Surveys in Subsaharan Africa," by Leonard W. Doob; "Surveying Peasant Attitudes in Turkey," by Frederick W. Frey; "Survey Research in Japan," by Hajime Ikeuchi (Director, Public Opinion Science Institute, Tokyo); "Comparative Survey Research: Some Topics for Discussion," by Eugene Jacobson; and "Survey Research on Political Modernization," by Daniel Lerner. These papers were discussed with reference to three broad topics-the substantive contributions that survey research can make to understanding of political change and modernization; methodological problems encountered in planning and carrying out such surveys; and the organizational problems involved. A number of ways in which survey research can contribute to understanding of processes of change and development were considered. In particular it was suggested that surveys concentrate on the study of what Lerner called "the revolution of rising frustrations." Survey techniques could be used to locate the segments of society where expectations are rising faster than the ability to satisfy them, as well as to examine possible ways of harnessing these rising expectations-through participation in voluntary associations, for instance. If survey studies are to contribute to knowledge of this area, it was agreed that they will have to be coordinated with a variety of other methods of study that go beyond the standard cross-sectional survey. Survey techniques themselves could be put to greater use, for example, in comparative studies. There was some discussion as to whether comparisons should be made within broadly similar cultural areas-such as the Arab Middle East or Latin America-or over a wider range of countries. A second question was whether the unit of study should be the nation state or the cultural units that make up many of the new nation states. In general it was agreed that studies of nations similar in culture and studies with a wider coverage are both fruitful. And even if the nation state were taken as the prime unit for survey purposes, it would be important to deal with regional and cultural differences. A major way in which survey research could be expanded, it was agreed, is through greater effort to focus on a variety of groups within a nation. In response to the question whether one ought to study the elite or mass _population, the conference strongly believed both should be studied. Samples should be designed to enable the investigator to deal adequately with strategic elites, with
