Race and American Political Development by Joe Lowndes

“This important volume places race at the center of political development in America.

There is no better introduction to this subject, one of the massive facts of the American experience.”

Its powerful account of how a cross-regional alliance of white supremacists and business-oriented anti-New Dealers fundamentally reoriented American politics advances our understanding not just of pathways to the present, but of prospects for the future.”
