Modern Prejudice and Institutional Barriers to Equal Employment Opportunity for Minorities.
Bielby, William T.
Journal of Social Issues, v43 n1 p79-84 1987
Pettigrew and Martin overstate the causal priority of structure over social psychology in maintaining barriers to equal employment and downplay the importance of the research they review. Braddock and McPartland present a plausible case for the existence of institutional barriers to equal employment, but their research is not conclusive. (PS)
