This volume assembles prominent political scientists, sociologists, economists, historians, anthropologists, theologians, and journalists to examine the intricacies of the ground-breaking 1984 campaign for president by Jesse Jackson. The contributors study the campaign in a broad social and cultural context that helps to explain the campaign's strengths and weaknesses. The book's interdiscilinary approach reveals the economic, sociological, and political ramifications of the first serious run for the presidency by an African-American.
