The research on which this paper is based was conducted under a contract between the Office of Economic Opportunity and the Institute of Government and Public Affairs at UCLA. The coordinator of the Los Angeles Riot Study was Nathan E. Cohen. Some of the data have appeared in an earlier technical report (Sears and McConahay, 1970). We wish to express our gratitude to the many people who worked on the study, particularly to Diana Ten Houten, Paula Johnson, T. M. Tomlinson, Ronald Abeles, and Esther Spachner. Computing assistance was obtained from the Pomona College Computing Center and the Health Sciences Computing Facility at UCLA.
