Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is one of the best books about race in contemporary American that I have read in the last decade. As an educator, I find the book extremely useful in my teaching, and in my own thinking. The book powerfully demonstrates the continuing impact of racism in the US, and provides compelling evidence for the subtle ways that race impacts us, even when we may be unaware of its operation. While its academic rigor is never compromised, the book is also a powerfully "good read." A real page turner. Despite the gravity of the subject and the sophistication of its analysis, the book is highly accessible, including to the layperson, and even has flashes of delightful humor. I think the book is superb, and I am grateful for it. PLEASE offer a second edition that will add an analysis of the 2012 election!

0 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Tanner V. on February 3, 2012
Format: Paperback
American history is one of my favorite subjects, and the 2008 election was assuredly a major point in our nation's history. This book does indeed invoke good points about the role race played in the election, but it's just about as you'd think it is. While the statistical backing is nice (especially if you're researching), their arguments boil down to the following:

-A significant portion (5%) of voters would not and did not vote for Obama because of his color

-Almost all black voters (95%) in America voted for Obama

-Race and religion play a very similar role in elections, with voter prejudice affecting the vote outcome

-Gender is less of an effect on elections than either race OR religion

These are the core, guiding principals of this book. If you want to know more about those four points or need to do research, then this might be the book for you. However, there's not much "substance" beyond those four tenets; just stats backing them up instead, making for an unenjoyable read once you read the premise of each topic.
