Racial Insurgency, the State, and Welfare Expansion: A Critical Comment and Reanalysis.
Jennings, Edward T., Jr.
American Journal of Sociology, v88 n6 p1220-36 May 1983
An article published by Issac and Kelly ("American Journal of Sociology," 86:1348-86) analyzing the relationship between urban rioting and welfare expansion in the United States has serious shortcomings. Reanalysis suggests that both civil turmoil and standard developmental variables shaped U.S. public assistance outputs from 1947 to 1976. (Author/RM)
