Sociologist Erving Goffman describing "total institutions" — prisons, nursing homes, and schools (during the day):
"First, all aspects of life are conducted in the same place and under the same central authority.
Second, each phase of the member’s daily activity is carried on in the immediate company of a large batch of others, all of whom are treated alike and required to do the same thing together.
Third, all phases of the day’s activities are tightly scheduled, with one activity leading at a prearranged time into the next, the whole sequence of activities being imposed from above by a system of explicit formal rulings and a body of officials.
Finally, the various enforced activities are brought together into a single plan purportedly designed to fulfill the official aims of the institution."
Brian LeCloux Zimbardo wrote a classic article comparing schools to prisons---after his famous Stanford Prison study. That one is hard to find. He also testified about prisons to Congress then and naturally Congress didn't listen (a far more liberal body with a massive Democratic contingent, but still deaf to his scholarship).
This is the citation but I haven't found it yet. http://eric.ed.gov/?id=EJ095375

Sassen "In that [distinctly urban] mixture of complexity and incompleteness lies the capacity of cities to reinvent themselves." #uadelhi

@SaskiaSassen : Complexity & incompleteness make a city, make the urban; simple density alone does not render the urban #UADelhi
