Robert Mason, author of Richard Nixon and the Quest for a New Majority A comprehensive account of the links between racism, conservatism, and presidential politics in the post civil rights era. Greta de Jong, author of Invisible Enemy: The African American Freedom Struggle after 1965 During the four decades separating the death of Martin Luther King and the election of Barack Obama, the meaning of civil rights became increasingly complex. Civil rights leaders made great strides in breaking down once-impermeable racial barriers, but they also suffered many political setbacks in their attempts to remedy centuries of discrimination. Complicating matters, the conservative turn in American political life transformed the national conversation about race and civil rights in surprising ways.This pioneering collection of essays explores the paradoxical nature of civil rights politics in the years following the 1960s civil rights movement by chronicling the ways in which presidential politics both advanced and constrained the quest for racial equality in the United States.
