Excerpt

This study is based upon the writer's unpublished doctoral dissertation, "Race Relations in a Small New England Industrial Town: A Cultural Study in Social Control," Yale University, 1953. Three articles based on this material have been published: The Race Relations Pattern by Areas of Behavior in a Small New England Town, American Sociological Review, Vol. 18, No. 2, April 1954, pp. 138-143; Social Controls in the Race Relations Pattern of a Small New England Town, Social Forces, Vol. 33, No. 1, October 1954, pp. 36-40; and A Cross-Institutional Comparison of Northern and Southern Race Relations, Sociology and Social Research, Vol. 42, No. 3, January-February 1958, pp. 185-191.
