Description

The controversial new thesis of Faces of Inequality is that a state's racial and ethnic composition, more than any other factor, directs its political processes and policies. Social diversity is therefore central to any understanding of state political cultures. Overturning long-established conventional wisdom, Rodney Hero has developed a completely new lens through which to view American politics.show more
