Nowhere to Run

Race, Gender, and Immigration in American Elections

Christian Dyogi Phillips

  • First large-scale study of candidate emergence and pathways of Asian American women and men and Latinas and Latinos, with contextual data on descriptive representation for women and men from all four of the largest racial groups in the United States
  • Includes an intersectional analysis that incorporates multiple methods--interviews, surveys, case studies, large scale elections, and population data--to show how race and gender are shaping candidacy simultaneously
  • Addresses widespread assumptions that fail to account for the multiple, overlapping factors that shape opportunities to run for political office
