Differences in Social Participation: Blacks and Whites
Klobus-Edwards, Patricia; And Others
Social Forces, 56, 4, 1035-52, Jun 78

A social-psychological approach emphasizing self-efficacy and system-blaming is proposed as an alternative. The findings, as predicted, indicate greater differences within races than between them.
