Overview

Concise, affordable, and engaging, American Government in Black and White, Second Edition, is a unique introduction to American government that uses racial and ethnic equality as its underlying theme. Authors Paula D. McClain and Steven C. Tauber address issues of inequality in major facets of government, including the U.S. Constitution, key American political institutions and instruments of political behavior, and the making of public policy. Engaging the original voices of racial and ethnic actors in our nation's history, they show students how to measure and evaluate the importance of equality in America, from its founding up to today.

FEATURES

* Three kinds of text boxes that help students develop empirical and qualitative analytical abilities: "Measuring Equality," "Evaluating Equality," and "Our Voices"

* Vignettes, illustrations, and case material that connect America's past and present

* Running glossary definitions, thematic chapter conclusions, probing review questions, and annotated additional readings highlighting writings by and about racial and ethnic minorities

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"American Government in Black and White is unique. There is no other text like it. It covers issues that other textbooks merely refer to as asides."--Richard Waterman, University of Kentucky

"This is a text that will provoke emotion and serious opportunities for critical thought about the role of government in the lives of Americans. It enables students to thoughtfully consider notions of equality and inequality and how government alleviates and burdens its citizens."--Damien Arthur, West Virginia State University

"American Government in Black and White is a thought-provoking yet substantive and research-filled textbook. It offers innovative perspectives on the overlap of race and politics while also fostering new levels of learning."--Anthony A. Maalouf, Delaware County Community College

"This book is innovative in that it uses the thematic lens of inclusion and exclusion to explore American politics. This approach is necessary because it enables today's college students to explore where our country has come from and where it is going."--Nathan K. Mitchell, Prairie View A&M University
