Isaac, Larry; Kelly, William R.
American Journal of Sociology, v86 n6 p1348-86 May 1981
This article addresses the relationship between insurgent political action and state-supported social services, with particular emphasis on the relationship between urban riots and welfare. Findings from analysis of activism and welfare since the Second World War indicate that urban riots played an important role nationally in short-term expansion of relief-giving in various programs.
