Moral Minorities and the Making of American Democracy

Kyle G. Volk

  • Reveals the unrecognized origins of a vital and lasting American political tradition-popular minority-rights politics.
  • Show how seemingly strange bedfellows- such as radical abolitionists and immigrant liquor dealers-simultaneously challenged the dominant democratic dictum that the majority should rule.
  • Provides context in epilogue for twenty-first century minority-rights issues, including gay rights/marriage; racial prejudice and racial equality; and religious minorities.
