Book DescriptionAfrican-American Politics is a cutting-edge introduction to the political successes, failures, and persistent challenges of African-American political participation in the United States. Exploring both historic and present day political phenomena, the book draws on a wide range of sources, including U.S. Census data, Gallup Polls, landmark court opinions, speeches and first-hand interviews to provide the reader with a comprehensive and up-to-the-minute analysis of what often appear to be "irreconcilable differences" between the American political system and one of its most historically subjugated constituency groups. Amongst the key topics covered are: symbolic versus substantive politics the impact of race on socio-economic status the post -Civil Rights leadership vacuum the rise of Black Conservatism and "New Black Politics" the political significance of Black Mega-Churches the emergence of "Hip Hop" as an alternative political voice the future of African - American Politics This book will be essential reading for students of American and minority politics, African - American studies and related disciplines. It will serve as a catalyst for dialogue for anyone interested in the role of African Americans in contemporary US political life.

Editorial Review"African American Politics is likely to be a very useful volume for students and for general readers seeking a context for understanding the Obama election and contemporary racial politics. The book elegantly melds mainstream political science ideas and topics with innovative themes, a sophisticated historical consciousness, and continued demonstration of the ways in which African American politics is, and is not, American politics tout court." Jennifer L. Hochschild, Harvard University "Kendra King's text captures the complex interaction between African Americans and US political institutions. It provides a deep understanding of the hopes and dreams of a population often left on the outside of American democracy and how that experience is critical to understanding American political institutions and politics. Students of African American politics in particular and American politics in general will be well served by reading this text." Mark Sawyer, University of California
