Editorial Reviews

Review

"The book is filled with insights and should contribute to a more open and honest dialogue about the true state of racial politics in our time."-Political Science Quarterly

"Logan understands not simply the rhetoric used here by politicians but also the impact that such rhetoric has on future elections..the book is best suited for laypeople, political junkies, and those generally interested in the connections between race and politics."-A.R.S. Lorenz,CHOICE

Format: Paperback
I loved this book. It presents a critically important issue in an understandable way for both the academic and everyday person looking to be informed.

I specifically want to point out chapter 6 in which the author talks about Latinos and Asian-Americans in the election. There is virtually NOTHING written on Latino and Asian-American voters in the 2008 election in the secondary literature. Furthermore, as Logan (the author) points out, the portrayals of these voters of color in the mainstream press during 07/08 were frustratingly one-sided, falsely pitting them again African-Americans, while failing to seriously take into account the key political issues that were of importance to them, during both the primary and the general election.

Logan's use of the concept of "racial triangulation," borrowed from scholar Claire Jean Kim, is particular helpful in making sense of ways that Latino and Asian American voters were configured in the wider discourse of the election.

A must read!

I was skeptical at first. My reading list consists of a lot of fiction. Though I was interested in the subject matter and wanted to learn more I was not sure if this book would hold my attention. It actually left me wanting to read more. Very insightful.

Logan's book provides an excellent analysis of the overt and covert politics in race in the Obama presidential candidacy and raises some important issues and questions about the future of race in the US. Overall, I find the work to be both interesting and well written. Professor Logan's writing style is clear, engaging, and accessible. I believe scholars, students, news media and "everyday" people interested in political issues, will appreciate the book.
