Voting 'petitioning' protesting 'Participation in the political, process is it cornerstone of our democracy.

The series as a whole provides the reader a unique opportunity to compare and contrast the political participation of diverse groups.
Each volume includes an introductory historical overview of the group's political process, individual chapters covering participation in electoral politics, protest politics, social movements/interest groups, and political office-holding; an A-Z section featuring brief entries on important people, laws, and terms; a directory of organizations, print and nonprint resources including websites; a chronology of major events; an annotated bibliography; and a comprehensive index.
Books in the Political Participation in America series offer authoritative overviews and provide balanced perspectives on volatile social topics that are here to stay: The authors help readers understand the dynamics of minority group participation in politics and the evolving civil rights of all Americans.
