This is the first comprehensive introduction to American government through the lens of racial and ethnic equality. It covers 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 racial and ethnic actors in our nation’s history, the authors show readers how to measure and evaluate the ephemeral value of equality in America from the founding to the current moment.
