The Almanac of Women and Minorities in American Politics

Synopsis

Who was the first African-American senator? Who was the first woman to cast a vote in the New World? Have any gays or lesbians held state-wide office? The answers are here in Almanac of Women & Minorities in American Politics. The culmination of Mart Martin's two years of diligent research, this is the first comprehensive single-volume reference to all women, African-Americans, Hispanics, Asian-Americans, native minorities, gays, & lesbians who have served in state or national elected positions, with additional information on local elected positions. Completely non-partisan & non-judgmental in approach, this valuable resource provides a complete reference on the "political" accomplishments of these people, as opposed to taking a "biographical" approach.
