Authors:Brantz, C.

Geographic term:Zimbabwe
race relations
Abstract:Findings suggest the hypothesis that in Southern Rhodesia the attitudes of 'Europeans' about 'Africans' will be inversely correlated: as length of residence increases, 'race' attitudes will become more conservative. This hypothesis may be stated alternatively in various forms: the strenght of European feeling for changing the racially differentiated society diminishes with longer periods of residence; integration with exitsting Europear attitudinel norms about Africans is positively correalted with increasing length of recidence; or, European 'newcomers' gradually become more acculturated to the beliefs, feelings, and policy orientations of the 'old-timers'. The research rerotres hero is drown from the authors' larger study: racial themes in Southern Rhodesia - the Attitudes and renaviour of the white population (1962). The focus is primarily upon the understanding of various social and personal corelates among Europeans within the milieu of Southern Rhodesia. References; tables.
