Title Details
Shaping Race Policy by Lieberman, Robert
Shaping Race Policy: The United States in Comparative Perspective
by Lieberman, Robert
"How have and will we resolve the fundamental tension between our race consciousness and our color-blind ideals? Robert Lieberman breaks new and important ground in resolving this basic American dilemma, focusing on how shifting coalitions and tensions between ideas and institutions have produced varying welfare and discrimination policies, all richly informed by comparisons with French and British experience. The result helps us understand not only how we got to the current crossroads but also where we must aspire to head. We must all hope that the nation will learn the lessons Lieberman teaches."--Anthony W. Marx, President, Amherst College"Shaping Race Policy advances existing scholarly discussion by bringing together issues normally only addressed by either country specialists or policy specialists. The book integrates these literatures and in the process provides a fresh account of how race--mediated through political institutions, patterns of group-state linkages and cultural patterns--has fashioned different political trajectories. Thoroughly researched, theoretically elegant, and persuasive, it is an outstanding exercise in comparative politics."--Desmond King, Nuffield College, Oxford University"Robert Lieberman's Shaping Race Policy is a milestone in political science institutional theory. Though sociological approaches to the study of institutions and politics have brought cultural factors to the task, Lieberman's book is a major contribution in this effort for a full accounting of policy making and its variations. This analysis is thorough, eloquent--and timely."--John Skrentny, University of California, San Diego
