America is currently in the midst of a major racial and ethnic demographic shift. By the twenty-first century, the population of Hispanics and Asians will increase significantly, while the black population is expected to remain relatively stable. Non-Hispanic Whites will decrease to just over half of the nation's population. How will the changing ethnic and racial composition of American society affect the long struggle for black political power and inclusion? To what extent will these racial and ethnic shifts affect the already tenuous nature of racial politics in American society?
Using the literature on black politics as an analytical springboard, Black and Multiracial Politics in America brings together a broad demography of scholars from various racial and ethnic groups to assess how urban political institutions, political coalitions, group identity, media portrayal of minorities, racial consciousness, support for affirmative action policy, political behavior, partisanship, and other crucial issues are impacted by America's multiracial landscape.

What People are Saying About This
"A significant contribution that reflects the richness, complexity, and conceptual challenges of conducting and reporting on the pivotal intersection of race and ethnicity. The essays included here should find acceptance among a broad audience of scholars and laypersons alike."
-Georgia A. Persons,editor of National Political Science Review
"Solid theory about the complicated relationships between blacks, whites and the new immigrants of 'color' requires grounding in empirical studies, quantitative and qualitative. This volume contributes to theoretical understanding by using the black-white paradigm as a point of departure to study issues of identity, political incorporation and inter-ethnic conflict and cooperation. An important contribution."
-Robert C. Smith,author of We Have No Leaders
"A valuable addition to the growing literature on black and multiracial politics."
-Paula D. McClain,coauthor of Can We All Get Along?
"This collection of essays could not be timelier...scholars pondering the implications of recent immigration for ethnic and racial politics would do well to look at this collection of essays."
