Effects of a Legitimate Authority's Justification of Inequality on the Mobilization of Revolutionary Coalitions

Status Characteristics and Expectation States: A Process Model
This technical report describes how status inequality can produce similar inequality of expectation states, and how the interaction process is affected by the status generalization process. It elaborates some ideas in the ...
Status Characteristics and Social Interaction
The authors review literature on effects of status differences on interaction and formulate general principles of status generalization to explain them. Next they conduct direct tests of the explanation in an experimental ...
The Legitimacy of Redistributive Agendas
a. The authors investigate the idea of nondecisions regarding redistributive political agenda. They focus on an idea that the greater the likelihood that a policy would redistribute resources, the less likely that policy ...
