In the fifth edition of this widely acclaimed book, Paula D. McClain and Joseph Stewart Jr. combine traditional elements of political science analysis with a fully updated survey of the political status of four major groups: blacks, Latinos, Asian Americans, and American Indians. Two dilemmas shape the book: How do we as a nation reconcile a commitment to equality with persistent inequality and discrimination? And what can we do about it-from the perspective of ethnic and racial minorities as well as within the dominant culture? Thoroughly updated following the historic 2008 presidential election, this new edition provides a concise overview of minority politics in America.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This latest edition of "'Can We All Get Along?'", arriving as it does in the recent wake of the paradigm shifting election of President Obama, gives students and instructors alike the updated comparative data and nuanced interpretation they need to understand the magnitude of racial and ethnic politics in the U.S."
--David E. Wilkins, University of Minnesota




"In the wake of an historic election, students will be searching for ways to understand the significance of race and ethnicity in American politics. This book offers a comprehensive and comparative approach to this important topic. It provides crucial historical context, vital contemporary data, and a survey of the most up-to-date theory in the field. For these reasons, I rely upon "'Can We All Get Along?'" as the backbone of my Race and American Politics course."
--Regina Freer, Occidental College




""'Can We All Get Along?'" explains why Barack Obama's 2008 election to the presidency has not made Rodney King's plaintive cry in 1992 irrelevant any more than it has eliminated race and ethnicity as factors integral to American politics, and the new 5th edition enables our comprehension of those facts to be as contemporary as today's headlines. Students in a basic American government course will learn from this versatile, accessible book that ethnicity/race is not merely a theme casually imposed on American politics; those in a minority politics class will be treated to a unique comparative examination of American politics from the divergent perspectives of principal American ethnic/racial minority groups. McClain and Stewart continue their tradition of clear and analytical writing that is also interesting. An exceptionally useful text!"
--Jim Sheffield, University of Oklahoma





"This book is a unique resource for helping students to understand the interplay between diverse populations and the American political system. The latest edition provides a rich introduction to the histories, theoretical concepts, and key terms associated with U.S. racial and ethnic politics. Students will also appreciate the authors' attention to recent statistics and the dynamics of the 2008 Presidential race."
--Janelle S. Wong, University of Southern California
