Editorial Reviews


This is an important and timely study of the effects of race, religion, gender, and ethnic identity upon recent American presidential elections by a number of distinguished scholars in the field. Its analysis goes much deeper than mere numbers and percentages, and therefore illuminates significant cultural realities in contemporary American life. (Sheldon, Garrett Ward)

Religion and race have proven to be contentious issues within U.S. presidential politics, and the contributors to this outstanding volume provide invaluable analysis on this subject that will be widely referenced for years to come. (Smith, R Drew)

This rich and excellent book throws a new light on the complex relationship between religion, race and the presidency. I plan to use it in my own classes. (Isabelle Richet)

Adds a great deal to an understanding of how a variety of ethnicities and systems of belief affect U.S. politics. Recommended. (T. T. Gibson Choice)

This groundbreaking book explores the critical intersection of religion, race, pluralism, and gender in American presidential politics. I highly recommend it to anyone in the U.S. or abroad seeking to understand the critical role that key voting constituencies play in U.S. politics. (Kjell O. Lejon)
