Black Politics after the Civil Rights Revolution brings together three decades of hard-to-find essays by influential scholar Dianne Pinderhughes. The essays provide a window into the institutional, political, and policy developments in African American politics in the post civil rights era. Although written separately, the chapters form a corpus for understanding a number of dimensions of African American politics, as well as for addressing the intellectual and theoretical issues explored in political science by scholars of racial and ethnic politics. The book also offers the opportunity to describe the academic institutions and intellectual communities that have framed this work and these political groups, and to describe how these groups have also served as sources of stimulation for the author. Finally the book allows us to see how Pinderhughes's personal perspective has evolved over decades of efforts at understanding these areas of racial politics. Integrating these decades of work, along with new introductory and concluding essays, and short introductory essays for each of the sections into which the chapters are placed, provides a clear perspective on African American Politics in the post civil rights era.
