Recent Research on Helping Behavior: An Overview and Bibliography.
Lau, Sing; Blake, Brian F.
An overview of major themes in altruism research during the 1969-1975 period is presented. Those problems specific to each approach, as well as problems believed to plague the bulk of current studies, are briefly described. Several areas of research (e.g., processes involved in the receiving of help) that appear particularly promising are also noted. The bibliographic references of over 400 studies conducted during the 1969-1976 period are listed. (Author)
