Review "This is the best single book on contemporary voting rights law. It combines a comprehensive survey with a balanced discussion of unsettled issues. Its technical discussions are both thorough and accessible. Scholars, litigators, and judges will all benefit from its insights." Pamela S. Karlan, University of Virginia "The authors write succinctly, judiciously, and authoritatively." Paul E. Peterson, Harvard University "Grofman, Handley and Niemi have written an important book about a crucial yet little understood aspect of American electoral politics. Students of American politics cannot afford to be ignorant of the problems addressed in this book, and the authors have provided a balanced and sophisticated treatment that thoroughly illuminates the issues, interests, and controversies." Robert Huckfeldt, Indiana University "A useful primer on contemporary voting rights issues. The authors break down complex concepts and make easy reading of legal cases, political theory, and social science research." Lani Guinier, University of Pennsylvania "Grofman, Handley, and Niemi explain how to provide more careful and data-sensitive interpretations of results from ecological analyses. Indeed, their well written book should clarify misunderstandings regarding the purpose of the Voting Rights Act and its impact as well as reduce unintentional misinterpretations of race annd voting patterns by political analysts." Political Science Quarterly "Grofman, Handley, and Niemi have written a very useful descriptive and historical analysis of the litigation surrounding the 1965 Voting Rights Act and its subsequent amendments....should be read by anyone interested in learning more about the role of social scientists as expert witnesses and about the pre-1990s voting rights cases." Carol M. Swain, American Political Science Review Book Description Written by authors with first-hand experience in the case law, this book details the evolution of the law and precedent from 1965 forward through the most up-to-date treatment of voting rights law and the numerous controversies surrounding minority representation.
