Join us for a virtual book launch of: "Hometown, Inequality: Race, Class, and Representation in American Local Politics" by Brian F. Schaffner, Jesse H. Rhodes and Ray J. La Raja on October 9th from 4-5pm.
Local governments play a central role in American democracy, providing essential services such as policing, water, and sanitation. Using big data and a representative sample of American communities, this book provides the first systematic examination of racial and class inequalities in local politics.
