Black Politics in Conservative America
"Black Politics in Conservative America examines the position of blacks in the United States in terms of history, politics, economics, and culture, and looks at the major political approaches available to African-American citizens. It explores the most important problems blacks face in twentieth-century America and the political structures within which they confront them. In this data-rich study, Pohlmann illuminates the institutionalized economic discrimination that functions to keep African Americans from moving ahead and delineates policy alternatives that offer hope and stimulate discussion." "The completely updated second edition of Pohlmann's Black Politics in Conservative America was revised both methodologically and conceptually. The additional analysis and conclusions include coverage of liberation theory, postindustrialism, black conservatism, and partisan realignment."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
