dc.description.abstract This thesis has examined touching as a dimension of proxemic behavior among four and five year old children - blacks and whites. Differences in touching behavior between the sexes and the races were explored.It was shown that differences' between the races in touching behavior were so slight and can be dismissed as negligible. Sex, however, was found to be a significant factor. Males tended to touch other males more than they tended to touch females. The same relationship was found for female children, i.e. they tended to touch other females more than males. The results were cast against the wider socio-cultural implications of behavior in general.
