About the Authors
  • Foreign migration to the United States is dramatically altering the demographic profile of the American electorate. Nearly a third of all Americans are of non-white and non-European descent. Latinos and Hispanics have recently eclipsed African Americans as the largest minority group in the United States. Between 1990 and 2000, Asians doubled the size of their population to more than 4 percent of Americans. Though immigration has altered the racial and ethnic composition of every state in the nation, surprisingly little is known about the consequences of this new heterogeneity for American politics. This book explores the impact and political consequences of immigration. After considering the organizations that mobilize new citizens to politics, the authors examine the political psychology of group consciousness for political mobilization. Finally, they consider the emerging patterns and choices of new voters.

    • Moves beyond the old black/white paradigm in the analysis of racial politics
    • Addresses the impact of immigration on politics in America, particularly Latinos and Asians
    • Emphasises political behaviour, such as voting patterns, political psychology, and community political organisations

    Reviews & endorsements

    "This volume asks many essential questions as the US moves into the next century...Volumes such as this one are critical foundations upon which the US needs to be addressing these new realities...Recommended." --Choice

    "The book, which focuses on the political participation opinion formation of Latinos, Asian Americans, and African Americans, is a must-read for anyone interested in race and American politics or political participation more broadly...The essays in this book, by raising these issues, have the potential to influence the political responses to these communities, which in turn can affect the cohesion or lack thereof of these minority groups."
    Perspectives on Politics, Robin Dale Jacobson, University of Puget Sound
