Abstract:

The paper was prepared by the author as a consultant contributor to a conference held in 1963 on training programs for required behavior in the event of capture. A case is presented for emphasizing positive standards of conduct required of the POW rather than passive resistance or negative obedience of rules. The author who is now Professor of Industrial Management, M.I.T., was active in the Army research program in POW behavior in the Korean War. His book, Coercive Persuasion, Norton, 1961, contains a follow-up on a select group of Army returnees.
