Reformism and Black Representation on City Councils
Robinson, Theodore; Dye, Thomas R.
Social Science Quarterly, 59, 1, 133-41, Jun 78
Examines the effect of reformed governmental structures (nonpartisan election, city manager government, at-large elections) on the representation afforded to blacks on city councils in 243 central cities. Finds that at-large elections prevent blacks from achieving representation commensurate to their numbers in the population. (Author)
