Bibliography Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary Members of Congress from racial minority groups often find themselves in a unique predicament: they represent constituencies that are more economically disadvantaged than those of their white colleagues and they themselves experience marginalization during the process of policy formulation on Capitol Hill. In 'Twists of Fate', Vanessa C. Tyson illuminates the ways in which House representatives from racial minority groups have worked together through an understanding of their linked political fates, to advocate successfully for equality and social justice.
