schema:description""This book offers a critical reevaluation of three fundamental and interlocking themes in American democracy: the relationship between race and politics, the performance and reform of election systems, and the role of courts in regulating the political process. This edited volume features contributions from some of the leading voices in election law and social science. The authors address the recurring questions for American democracy and identify new challenges for the twenty-first century.

The book thus provides intellectual guideposts for future scholarship and policy making in American democracy"--"@en
