My research has focused on social psychology and social issues, especially issues dealing with political systems, political authority, and domestic and international intergroup relations. I also have a continuing interest in the mass media and its relation to international conflict and race relations. In addition, I am interested in methodological questions in the study of collective behavior, mass media, and political authority. This interest in methodology has expressed itself in two forms: one is the manner in which data are collected, and the other is the problem to be investigated. My current activities are focused on a study of the death penalty, quantitative analysis of interstate conflict, district characteristics and voting records of congressional representatives, and socal perception and the power law.
