Minority representation and the quest for voting equality by Bernard Grofman( Book )

17 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in English and held by 680 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the passage of the Voting Rights Act in 1965, the right of minorities to register and vote was largely secured. It was soon discovered, however, that minority voting did not guarantee the election of minorities or minority-preferred candidates. Indeed, efforts by states and localities in the second half of the 1960s were aimed at denying any substantial minority representation to go along with the ability to cast ballots. Eventually congressional amendments to the Act along with the Supreme Court opinion in Thornburg v. Gingles (1986) have led to efforts to eliminate electoral laws that have the effect of diluting the minority vote, whether or not they were enacted with discriminatory intent. Controversy still surrounds the matter of minority representation, however, because of the ambiguity of certain aspects of the law and because of problems in applying it to the largely single-member district context of the 1990s. This book is the most up-to-date treatment of voting rights law and the numerous controversies surrounding minority representation. The authors have extensive, firsthand experience in both the legal battles and the scholarly examination of these issues. Based on this wealth of experience, they describe the development of the law after 1965, discuss in detail the prevailing Supreme Court interpretation of the Voting Rights Act, and examine discrepancies in federal court interpretations of subsequent actions. They also introduce the reader to technical procedures for establishing standards of representation and measuring discrimination. In the final two chapters, they consider the application of voting rights law to districting in the 1990s along with the implications of recent developments for the future of representation in America

Civic education : what makes students learn by Richard G Niemi( Book )

8 editions published in 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book takes a look at what U.S. high school seniors know about government and politics and how they learn about it. Secondary school civics courses enhance students' civic knowledge. The book is based on the 1988 National Assessment of Educational Progress (naep), the most extensive assessment to date of civic knowledge among youth. The depth of students' knowledge on a wide range of political and civic topics is documented. Differences in civic knowledge are demonstrated among students grouped according to race, gender, type of school, amount of instruction, and other characteristics of individuals, schools, and homes. A theoretical model to explain the cognitive process by which students learn about politics is developed and tested and then discussed. Specific changes in the style and emphasis of civics teaching are suggested. Chapter titles include: (1) "Civic Education and Students' Knowledge"; (2) "What High School Students Know (and Don't Know) about Civics"; (3) "How Students Learn about Government: The Exposure-Selection Model"; (4) "Exposure to Learning: Civic Instruction"; (5) " Selection and Retention"; (6) What Makes Students Learn" and (7) "The Future of Civic Education." Contains chapter notes and extensive references. (Bt)
