Dilemmas in American politics.


McClain (political science, law, African-American studies and public policy, Duke U.) and Stewart (political science, Clemson U.) deliver the fifth edition of their textbook on racial and ethnic minorities, providing students and scholars with revised content that reflects the results of the 2008 presidential election. The authors analyze Constitutional theory, political behavior and institutions as they relate to African-Americans, Latinos, Asian-Americans and Native Americans and demonstrate the differences between political action and experience in each group. Other topics include partisan identification, minority representation, affirmative action and interminority group relations and coalitions.
