9780199946013: American Government in Black and White

Concise, affordable, and engaging, American Government in Black and White is the first introduction to American government to use racial and ethnic equality as its underlying theme. The author team is perfect to take on this task: Paula McClain is a premier African American political scientist who has written extensively on the politics of race and ethnicity for students, scholars, and the general public. Steven Tauber is known for his work on civil rights and liberties and his legal studies in a variety of areas, including animal rights and criminal justice. Together, they take on the canon, from the U.S. Constitution, to key American political institutions and instruments of political behavior, to the making of public policy. Engaging the original voices of ethnic actors in our nation's history, the authors show students how to measure and evaluate the value 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

Review:

McClain & Tauber make an extraordinary contribution to undergraduate teaching by explicating the fundamentals of American politics through the prism of race. --Michael Rodriguez, Richard J. Stockton College of New Jersey

McClain and Tauber identified and filled a hole in the American politics textbook market. This outstanding book offers a new and innovative perspective on American Government. Beyond providing a solid foundation for understanding the functioning of American Government, McClain and Tauber use race, ethnicity, and gender as a lens to analyze every aspect of the American political system. For scholars looking for a comprehensive American Government textbook that deals with race, ethnicity, and gender in a thorough way, this is the best book on the market. --Stefanie Chambers, Trinity College
