Voting and the Spirit of American Democracy

Essays on the History of Voting and Voting Rights in America

Writing in a succinct and lively manner, leading historians and political scientists trace the history of American voting from the colonial period to the present incorporating the latest scholarship on suffrage reform, woman suffrage, black voting rights, and electoral participation. They explain how voting practices changed over time as the result of broad historical forces such as economic growth, demographic shifts, the results of war, and the rise of political reform movements.


Donald W. Rogers is a history instructor at Central Connecticut State University and Housatonic Community College.
