The Future Is Ours
The Future Is Ours: Minority Politics, Political Behavior, and the Multiracial Era of American Politics | Shaun Bowler, Gary Segura
1 post | 1 read
Today's demographic reality is a "majority-minority" America wherein racial and ethnic minorities comprise a growing share of the U.S. population and electorate, and are themselves becoming more diverse and representing more decisive votes. How America evolves as a society and a polity depends on whether and how these new Americans access and are accommodated by existing institutions. The Future is Ours offers a data-based examination of whether (and exactly how) minority citizens differ from members of the white majorityin political participation, voting preferences, policy opinions, orientations toward government, and legislative representation. Data analyses are presented in non-technical fashion, but throughout the authors attempt to engage issues of research design that expose students to the logics of social science inquiry. Bowler and Segura argue that demography will, in fact, be destiny. The balance between the two parties is at a tipping point and the outcome depends on how minority Americans engage in politics.

Its an attempt to break down the changing landscape of demographics in America, and how that will affect the political world. It's not a concrete breakdown of what will happen, only what might however.
