The first edition of this book offered one of the first social
science analyses of Barack Obama's historic electoral campaigns and
early presidency. In this second edition the authors extend that
analysis to Obama's service in the presidency and to his second
campaign to hold that presidency. Elaborating on the concept of the
white racial frame, Harvey Wingfield and Feagin assess in detail
the ways white racial framing was deployed by the principal
characters in the electoral campaigns and during Obama's
presidency. With much relevant data, this book counters many
commonsense assumptions about U.S. racial matters, politics, and
institutions, particularly the notion that Obama's presidency
ushered in a major post-racial era. Readers will find this fully
revised and updated book distinctively valuable because it relies
on sound social science analysis to assess numerous events and
aspects of this historic campaign.
