“Minorities and Representation in American Politics is the most comprehensive treatment of minorities in politics that I have ever read. Herrick is able to cover multiple minority groups and does it in a fashion that does not neglect any of the relevant points that need to be addressed in a book of this kind. The scope of the text is sweeping, and it has no rival on the market.”
“Minorities and Representation in American Politics comprehensively integrates discussion of race, gender, ethnicity, and intersectionality. In doing so, it facilitates the comparison and contrast of experiences of minority statuses far more effectively than other textbooks. The representational lens through which the text explores minorities in politics nicely ties together the different groups and themes, and Herrick does a great job of introducing relevant empirical research from inside and outside of political science.”
“Rebekah Herrick is able to highlight many interesting facets of the minority experience without overwhelming the reader. It is hard for me to believe that there is any other book out there that provides such a detailed, thoughtful analysis as Minorities and Representation in American Politics.”
“Herrick’s text provides a comprehensive examination of the distinctive minority groups within the U.S. political system and brilliantly navigates the intersectionality of gender and race/ethnicity with representation. While the book addresses many fundamental topics of minorities and covers a wide spectrum of the political institutions and behavioral aspects of representation in the United States, it also captures much of the recent scholarly debate and research in a way that remains accessible to the undergraduate.”
