The unsteady march : the rise and decline of racial equality in America by Philip A Klinkner( Book )

13 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 1,275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Our nation's commitment to racial equality has never been consistent, nor has it been irresistibly driven forward by America's founding principles. In The Unsteady March, Philip A. Klinkner and Rogers M. Smith disprove the idea that the United States has been on a "steady march" toward the end of racial discrimination. Countering a spate of recent books claiming that black equality has nearly been realized, Klinkner and Smith argue that progress toward equality has a specific and unrecognized history: it has occurred only in brief periods, under special conditions, and it has always been followed by periods of stagnation and retrenchment." "In their conclusion, Klinkner and Smith argue that we are today in a period of retrenchment such as those that have followed previous reform eras. With its insights into contemporary racial politics and its wealth of historical material, The Unsteady March is a comprehensive, if controversial, analysis of race relations across two centuries."--Jacket

Midterm : the elections of 1994 in context( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By all accounts, 1994 represents sweeping electoral and policy change rarely seen in any American election, let alone in midterm. This book puts 1994 in context with other significant midterm elections, from 1810 to the present. It also captures the very contemporary concerns unique to 1994: the role of the religious right, the "angry white male," the Contract with America, and the overall tenor of antipathy as voters turned out (or not) to show the Clinton administration what they thought of its first two years. This collection of original essays by noted political scientists gives us the first thoughtful analysis of the 1994 election results and prepares us to anticipate the certain drama and import of the elections of 1996

Lest we forget by Bill D Moyers( Recording )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Bill Moyers and four historians talk about the origins of the so called "birther movement." Panelists include Nell Painter, Khalil Gibran Muhammad, Christopher Lebron, and Philip Klinkner. They allege that the nation's history of white supremacy fostered a belief that a black person could not possibly be elected president without fraud and deceit. Using President Trump's own words from interviews and speeches, the scholars call him a demagogue and say that demagogues encourage their supporters to blame minority populations for a nation's problems
