The Emergence of David Duke and the Politics of Race

Synopsis

This collection of essays growing out of in-depth research on David Duke examines the controversial Louisiana politician's past, his electoral success, his appeal, and his constituency. The contributors, including political scientists, journalists, historians, and activists, conclude that Duke appeals to a vast group of middle-class, white voters who feel that they have been ignored by the political scene and bypassed in economic terms.
