Lublin's evidence, together with policy recommendations for improving minority representation, will make observers of the political scene reconsider the avenues to fair representation." "The author proposes that establishing a balance between majority-minority districts and creating districts where the minority population would be slightly more dispersed, making up 40 percent of a total district, would allow African Americans to exercise more influence over their representatives."--Jacket." ;
