Race, Political Orientation, and Participation: An Empirical Test of Four Competing Theories.
Guterbock, Thomas M.; London, Bruce
American Sociological Review, v48 n4 p439-53 Aug 1983
Competing theories on differences in rates of political participation and joining of voluntary organizations by Blacks and Whites are tested, using data from a 1967 national survey. Results support the ethnic community theory, contradict the compensatory theory of Black participation, and do not support the isolation and cultural inhibition theories. (AOS)
