|About the Book|
Written in 1984 during the midst of Jesse Jacksons drive for the Democratic Presidential nomination.American society is an amalgamation of various groups, divided along racial, religious, ethnic and other lines. Though all of these groups have the right to vote, no such right of political power is similarly guaranteed. As the same time, political power is essential to the assurance of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Consequently, these groups must attain that power through their own efforts.How, then, does a previously un-empowered constituency ascend to political power in the United States?
