Abstract

The study of the place of racial and cultural minorities in the social structure must give careful attention to the ways in which these groups influence and are influenced by political decisions and legal processes. In this chapter, our concern will be to compare the status of racial and cultural minorities with that of the majority population in voting, office-holding, and political influence in American life.
