Race and British Electoral Politics


Remedying a major shortcoming in traditional texts on electoral politics in Britain, this ground-breaking book examines key themes pertaining to the study of race and electoral politics. Providing both an historical and theoretical analysis of race and ethnicity in politics, the contributors examine the participation and influence of ethnic minorities in electoral politics at both ends of the political spectrum. This book will become a core text for students studying British politics, particularly those taking course options on electoral politics, race, ethnicity and comparative politics.
