Political parties have long sought to expand their electoral coalitions by making marginal changes to the way they project themselves to the public. How do voters respond to these often short-term campaign appeals to ""compassionate conservatives"" or ""moderate Democrats""? Is politics about inclusion or illusion? And what role does race play in the process? In ""Race, Republicans, and the Return of the Party of Lincoln"", author Tasha Philpot offers a groundbreaking analysis of how political parties use racial images to make cosmetic changes to their parties' images, even when the parties do not alter their platforms.
