    The Election of Barack Obama

    By: Baodong Liu

    Date Released

    Out of Print

    "This book examines the historical election of Barack Obama as the first African-American president from the perspective of racial relations. To trace the effect of time, Liu links Obama's multiracial winning coalition to the two-party system and the profound impact of racial changes since 1965. Contrary to the popular momentum theory which emphasizes the early victories in mainly two states, Iowa and New Hampshire, this book demonstrates that state context matters. Obama's electoral performance in a state is better explained by its level of racial tension, rather than the emotional need of Americans to elect a black president"--Provided by publisher.
