The Political Behavior of Older American Blacks.
Peterson, Steven A.; Somit, Albert
Gerontologist, v32 n5 p592-600 Oct 1992
Used subsample of National Opinion Research Center's 1987 General Social Survey to examine three competing explanations for political behavior of older African Americans (n=157). Found socioeconomic model good predictor of political behavior; ethnic community theory and empowerment model good predictors of alienation but not of political interest or activity. (Author/NB)
