Slavic and Italian Canadian Attitudes towards Authority.
Ryan, Michael G.
Predicting that Italian Canadians would hold attitudes of greater hostility and anxiety toward authority than Slavic Canadians, this study, using 58 part-time summer students (29 Italians and 29 Slavs) at three universities in Canada, analyzed the subjects' responses to the five-response option Likert type scale. Results confirmed the early predictions. When compared to the attitudinal positions of French and English Canadians on the same scale, the results revealed that Italian Canadians shared with the French Canadian majority in Quebec a high level of hostility toward authority, while the Slavic Canadians shared with English Canadians, the majority Canadian language group, a low level of hostility toward authority. It was also noted that Italian Canadians shared with English Canadians high scores on attitudes of anxiety toward authroity. (HOD)
