Understanding Violence in Contemporary and Earlier Gangs: An Exploratory Application of the Theory of Reasoned Action.
Evans, Judy P.; Taylor, Jerome
Journal of Black Psychology, v21 n1 p71-81 Feb 1995
Reviews the theory of reasoned action to demonstrate how it can be applied to understanding gang violence, and illustrates its potential applicability to a pilot sample of 30 contemporary and 18 earlier gangs living in a large metropolitan community. Results indicate this theory has been helpful in explaining higher levels of violence in contemporary gangs relative to earlier gangs. (GR)
