Representation of Minority Groups in the U.S. aims to assess the changes that have occurred with respect to the descriptive and substantive representation of women, African Americans, Latinos, Asian Americans, and American Indians in the U.S. political system from 1965 to the present. Each institutionally oriented chapter provides the reader with detailed demographic and behavioral facts concerning minority groups in the political system. How these groups are represented is assessed through discussions of partisanship, ideology, policy impact, role orientations, leadership, committee assignment, bill co-sponsorship, and voting behavior.
