about this item

This two-volume set compiles 34 chapters on the voting behavior of key minority groups in the US: African American, women, Latino/Latina, Native American, Jewish American, Arab and Muslim American, Asian American, and lesbian, gay, bisexual, and ****** voters. They consider the issues that drive each group to the polls and their influence on American politics. Each section looks at one minority group and contains an introductory chapter on what makes them unique in terms of social and political values, how the majority has written voting laws that allowed or restricted their access, how the group has voted in the past, which political party the group has affiliated with, how it is likely to vote in the future, and where the group's influence is most strongly felt, followed by chapters on influential issues, such as the Voting Rights Act, reproductive rights attitudes, immigration attitudes, Cuban American partisanship, sovereignty and treaty rights for Native Americans, and marriage equality. Contributors are political science and other scholars from the US. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
