Paternalism Among Social Service Employees
Stone, Clarence N.
Journal of Politics, 39, 3, 794-807, Aug 77
Compares paternalism toward clients among employees in social agencies which serve the poor with agencies which serve the middle class. Findings indicate that paternalism is stronger among employees who serve the poor. Possible reasons for this paternalism are given and further research into motives and attitudes of social agency employees is called for. For journal availability, see SO 505 894. (Author/DB)
