Race, Ethnicity, and Gender in Politics and Policy

Series Editors:

This new series of books is devoted to trends in race, ethnicity, and gender politics over the past decade:

  • Approximately a third of all Americans are non-white.
  • Latinos are now the largest minority group in the United States.
  • Racial politics can no longer be fully understood relying solely on a black-white lens.
  • The percentage of Americans who identify as more than one race is growing.
  • Immigration is central to the politics and policy agenda of the country.
  • Gender politics are especially affected by the growth in the influence of African American women as voters and the growth in the number of black women in elected offices.
  • Latinas are increasing their political profiles as well.

This new book series invites studies that examine and explain the political consequences of these dramatic transformations. Specifically, the series will publish leading-edge theoretical and empirical research that highlights and analyzes the complex and profound ways that either race, ethnicity, gender, or their various intersections, shape and influence political institutions, individual attitudes and behaviors, social norms, and the policy-making process. We especially encourage and promote projects that use intersectionality analytical research designs, designs that focus specifically on the complex ways race, ethnicity, and gender intersect and interact to shape politics and public policies.

A wide range of book types are invited for the series:

  • Original scholarly research monographs;
  • Core textbooks for emerging and changing courses;
  • Special topic books intended for use as supplemental texts in graduate and undergraduate courses; and
  • Handbooks, encyclopedias, annual editions, and other innovative forms of content that expand the discoverability of the politics, policy, and intersectionality of race, ethnicity, and gender.

Topics we are seeking include:

  • The Democratic Party Coalition and the Future of American Politics
  • The Political Effects of Inequality in American Politics
  • Race, Ethnicity, and Gender: An Intersectionality Perspective
  • Handbook of Intersectionality in the Social Sciences

Published in collaboration with The Center for the Study of Race, Ethnicity, and Gender in the Social Sciences (REGSS) at Duke University.
