520 8  The central domestic issue in the United States over the 
       long history of this nation has been the place of the 
       people of color in American society. One aspect of this 
       debate is how African-Americans are represented in 
       Congress. Kenny J. Whitby examines congressional 
       responsiveness to black interests by focusing on the 
       representational link between African-American 
       constituents and the policymaking behavior of members of 
       the United States House of Representatives. The book uses 
       the topics of voting rights, civil rights, and race- based
       redistricting to examine how members of Congress respond 
       to the interests of black voters. Whitby's analysis weighs
       the relative effect of district characteristics such as 
       partisanship, regional location, degree of urbanization 
       and the size of the black constituency on the voting 
       behavior of House members over time. Whitby explores how 
       black interests are represented in formal, descriptive, 
       symbolic, and substantive terms. He shows the political 
       tradeoffs involved in redistricting to increase the number
       of African-Americans in Congress. The book is the most 
       comprehensive analysis of black politics in the 
       congressional context ever published. It will appeal to 
       political scientists, sociologists, historians, and 
       psychologists concerned with minority politics, 
       legislative politics, and the psychological, political, 
       and sociological effects of increasing minority membership
       in Congress on the perception of government held by 
       African Americans. Kenny J. Whitby is Associate Professor 
       of Political Science, University of South Carolina.
