"The role that race and religion play in American presidential elections is attracting national attention like never before. Many of the 2008 presidential candidates proactively courted racial and religious voting constituencies including African Americans, Latinos, Asian Americans, Jews, Muslims, Catholics, Evangelicals, mainline Protestants, women, and seculars and the non-religious. Religion, Race, and the American Presidency examines some of the reasons why, by focusing on the roles of these racial, gender, and religious groups in presidential politics over the last forty years, and in elections from 1996 to 2004 in particular."--BOOK JACKET.
