"A strong and well-informed set of reviews of efforts and achievements of African Americans and their political allies across the broadest spectrum of arenas of government." --Rufus P. Browning, San Francisco State University "Useful for undergraduate courses in black politics and American politics."--Jennifer L. Hochschild, Princeton University These essays offer a current and comprehensive analysis of black politics and its impact at the national level on the American political system. Whether analyzing the Supreme Court, interest groups, public policy, the Congressional Black Caucus, or political attitudes and behavior, these essays demonstrate that African Americans participate in national politics in a substantial way, and that they have done so in a manner consistent with pluralist theory. However, they have been less active in executive policy making, and this trend is also explored and analyzed. Contents INTRODUCTION Black Politics in the United States, by Huey L.
