Divided by Color: Racial Politics and Democratic Ideals, by Donald R. Kinder and Lynn M. Sanders

Divided by Color: Racial Politics and Democratic Ideals, by Donald R. Kinder and Lynn M. Sanders Book Reviews Divided by Colon Racial Politics and Democratic Ideals by Donald R. Kinder and Lynn M. Sanders. Chicago, University of Chicago Press, 1996. 393 pp. $27.50. This important book culminates many years of research on what Kinder and others used to call symbolic racism but now, somewhat modified, identify as racial resentment. Its focus is a careful analysis of the well known 1986 National Election Studies survey, supplemented by other poll results and succinct discussions of America’s racial history, racial structure, and (especially) contemporary racial politics. It offers no surprises to those who already know Kinder’s and Sanders’s work, but it focuses and consolidates this significant line of research. And, of course, hard though it is to imagine, there may actually be some people who are not already immersed in the details of studying American racial attitudes; for them this book is both inviting in style and rich in content. Divided by Color revolves around the fact that white and black Americans are widely divided in their views of appropriate policies with regard to equal opportunity in schools and jobs, federal efforts to aid blacks, and affirmative action. Many whites oppose racially distinctive policies; most blacks support them. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Political Science Quarterly Oxford University Press

Abstract

Book Reviews Divided by Colon Racial Politics and Democratic Ideals by Donald R. Kinder and Lynn M. Sanders. Chicago, University of Chicago Press, 1996. 393 pp. $27.50. This important book culminates many years of research on what Kinder and others used to call symbolic racism but now, somewhat modified, identify as racial resentment. Its focus is a careful analysis of the well known 1986 National Election Studies survey, supplemented by other poll results and succinct discussions of America’s racial history, racial structure, and (especially) contemporary racial politics. It offers no surprises to those who already know Kinder’s and Sanders’s work, but it focuses and consolidates this significant line of research. And, of course, hard though it is to imagine, there may actually be some people who are not already immersed in the details of studying American racial attitudes; for them this book is both inviting in style and rich in content. Divided by Color revolves around the fact that white and black Americans are widely divided in their views of appropriate policies with regard to equal opportunity in schools and jobs, federal efforts to aid blacks, and affirmative action. Many whites oppose racially distinctive policies; most blacks support them.
