Summary

Updated in a new 6th edition, American Politics and the African American Quest for Universal Freedom is a dynamic and comprehensive book from two nationally renowned scholars.  This book continues to demonstrate the profound influence African Americans have had -- and continue to have -- on American politics. The authors show that through the quest for their own freedom in the United States, African Americans have universalized and expanded the freedoms for all Americans.
