Editorial Reviews

Review

Abigail Thernstrom is simply the best writer and thinker we have on voting rights in America. Voting Rights--and Wrongs, the culmination of decades of research and thinking, is the watershed book that will reframe our thinking on minorities and the vote. This book is grounded in an irony: that race-specific voting policies designed to achieve racial equality in fact perpetuate racial inequality. And now fate has conspired to reinforce Thernstrom's thesis. Barack Obama's election makes it clear that minorities can now win in a political open market. This is the book we need to understand voting rights in post-Obama America. --Shelby Steele, Robert J. and Marion E. Oster Senior Fellow, Hoover Institution

“Abby Thernstrom has studied issues relating to race throughout her illustrious and academically productive career. America in Black and White, co-authored by her husband Stephan Thernstrom, is the gold standard for those who want to trace racial progress in America. Voting Rights—and Wrongs: The Elusive Quest for Racially Fair Elections will stand honorably alongside America in Black and White as an invaluable contribution to how Americans evolve in their thinking about race. With the election of Barack Obama and reconsideration of the Voting Rights Act, this new work of scholarly excellence could not come at a better time.” --Ward Connerly, president, American Civil Rights Institute
