Book Summary:

This text covers the history of the civil rights movement beginning in the crucial years of WWII. The author focuses on the development of black electoral politics from southern disfranchisement to the election of big city mayors. He ties together the broader effort to achieve the legal right to equality with his specific aims of achieving actual political equality. He has successfully linked the national struggle for civil and political rights with grassroots efforts where much of the inspiration and resources for the movement were derived. It provides an opportunity to explain the powerful institutions of government - presidents, Congress, the Supreme Court, and the actions of ordinary citizens in the local communities.

Book Summary:

The essays in this volume center on blacks and national politics, and black political participation. Essays in part I deal with national and state politics and include pieces on presidential, congressional, and gubernatorial elections. Part II presents a historical survey of who votes, who is elected, and to what offices. The final part on urban politics and public policy considers mayors in big cities like New Orleans, Detroit, Philadelphia, Chicago, and Cleveland. The authors stress the need for independent black organization and consistency in maintaining organizational integrity of the sponsoring constituency.

Book Summary:

This book collects for the first time the black freedom movement writings of Jack O'Dell and restores one of the great unsung heroes of the civil rights movement to his rightful place in the historical record. Climbin' Jacob's Ladder puts O'Dell's historically significant essays in context and reveals how he helped shape the civil rights movement. From his early years in the 1940s National Maritime Union, to his pioneering work in the early 1960s with Martin Luther King Jr., to his international efforts for the Rainbow Coalition during the 1980s, O'Dell was instrumental in the development of the intellectual vision and the institutions that underpinned several decades of anti-racist struggle. He was a member of the outlawed Communist Party in the 1950s and endured red-baiting throughout his long social justice career. This volume is edited by Nikhil Pal Singh and includes a lengthy introduction based on interviews he conducted with O'Dell on his early life and later experiences. Climbin' Jacob's Ladder provides readers with a firm grasp of the civil rights movement's left wing, which O'Dell represents, and illuminates a more radical and global account of twentieth-century US history.

Book Summary:

The Underdog in American Politics is an original analysis of how the underdog concept applies to the Democratic Party and American politics and culture. In particular, it analyzes how the power of the underdog has shaped, and reflected, the politics of Democrats running for president. From Thomas Jefferson to Barack Obama, the author uses biography, ideology, campaign strategy and public policies to depict the many different points of contact between Democrats and underdogs. The core values of equality, fairness and non-discrimination are analyzed. The role of sympathy and empathy towards underdogs is also examined.
