Article Outline1. Start with article citation. It should be in APSA format, see below.McKenzie, Brian D. 2008. Reconsidering the Effects of Bonding Social Capital: A closer look at black civil society in America. Political Behavior. 30:25-45.2. What is the research question posed by the author? Another option is to find the purpose of the article?McKenzie (2008) explores the potential negative effects of social capital within the African American community. Do African Americans who attend black churches have a commitment to the larger polity or are they only concerned about black advancement?3. What theoretical foundation is the author building on?McKenzie (2008) is working on the theory of social capital, which claims that communities where people are interconnected and know each other function better. Civic associations, churches, the PTA, neighborhood groups, etc. all serve to develop a social capital in the community. Social capital has two aspects to it, bridging and bonding.

He finds that members of black organizations are more likely to vote than are non-members. Black organization members are also more likely to engage in broad political activities when compared to non-members. Black church membership, on the other hand, had no effect on voting or broad political participation.6. Conclusion So what? Why should we care?Social capital continues to be a popular topic for politicos and researchers alike. The specter of the dark side of social capital, and bonding social capital, should not keep government policy or others from encouraging the public from civic engagement. Because even in majority minority groups the benefit of group participation continues to bear out
