What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

‘Holding tremendous value for both the classroom and research, The Politics of Race is a solid model of comparative work. Jill Vickers and Annette Isaac do an excellent job providing a historical institutional analysis of race politics across three states and considering possible changes from above and below. Clearly written and presented, with terms well defined in both the text and glossary, Politics of Race is an important and valuable intervention into the political science literature.’

‘A clearly laid out and very instructive book, The Politics of Race is an important contribution to the comparative study of race in the social sciences. Through noteworthy new ideas and useful concepts, Jill Vickers and Annette Isaac make an excellent case for why issues of race cannot be ignored by political scientists.’
