Concise, affordable, and engaging, this second edition is a unique introduction to American government that uses racial and ethnic equality as its underlying theme.

Engaging the original voices of racial and ethnic actors in our nation's history, they show students how to measure and evaluate the importance of equality in America, from it’s founding up to today.
