The Roots of Urban Discontent extends significantly the analysis of opinion and attitude surveys undertaken pursuant to the National Advisory Commission's mandate. It is a major addition to the literature comparing urban institutions in American cities; it is also a significant contribution to the study of interactions between urban political and civic leaders and the black population and between blacks and "street-level" agents of selected public service-providing and commercial institutions in American cities in the later 1960s.
