The Influence of Authoritarianism Upon Prejudice: A Review.
Hanson, David J.
Following an exhaustive review of the literature, over 60 items relevant to the relationship between authoritarianism and prejudice were identified. They include such "fugitive" items as conference papers and master's theses. This paper reviews the findings of these studies regarding prejudice. It concludes that, while some writers have stressed the need to emphasize social and cultural influences and others have suggested other variables as alternatives to authoritarianism, the value of that concept as a partial explanation of prejudice has won wide acceptance. Included are 69 references to the literature. (Author)
