Feld, Scott L.; Carter, William C.
American Journal of Sociology, v103 n5 p1165-86 Mar 1998

Demonstrates that reallocation of students among schools may reduce opportunities for interracial contact by focusing on weak social ties as one important type of contact. Considers policy implications for schools and theoretical implication for understanding intergroup relations. (DSK)
