The almanac of women and minorities in American politics
Who was the first African-American senator? Who was the first woman to cast a vote in the New World? Have any gays or lesbians held state-wide office? The answers are here in The Almanac of Women and Minorities in American Politics. The culmination of Mart Martin’s two years of diligent research, this is the first comprehensive single-volume reference to all women, African-Americans, Hispanics, Asian-Americans, native minorities, gays, and lesbians who have served in state or national elected positions, with additional information on local elected positions. Completely non-partisan and non-judgmental in approach, this valuable resource provides a complete reference on the “political” accomplishments of these people, as opposed to taking a “biographical” approach.Accurate, thoroughly factual, and up-to-date, this volume also features: a chronology from colonial times to the present for each ethnic group; a roster of political achievements in the United States by members of each group; details on women who have served as head of state/government in other countries; and “Notable Firsts” biographical sketches in each section. As the color and gender of our politics change, this almanac serves as an indispensable desk reference for teachers, students, journalists, and authors.
