Dog Whistle Politics

How Coded Racial Appeals Have Reinvented Racism and Wrecked the Middle Class

Ian Haney López

  • Sweeping and authoritative overview of how the right wing has used coded racial language to advance its electoral fortunes and undermine equality since the 1960s
  • Draws upon cutting-edge scholarship in history, law, sociology, and psychology, but translates it into accessible language that makes clear how the dog whistle strategy works
