The 15 essays in Gender, Race, and Social Identity in American Politics focus mainly on recent presidential nominations and campaigns. Editor Montalbano (Indiana Univ.–Purdue Univ. Columbus) and the contributors demonstrate how analyses of rhetoric used in announcements, speeches, and rallies have been used to impact political identities and to strengthen support. The role of gender-related body image is also explored. Montalbano suggests that the papers can be clustered into three groups. The first five examine the "intersectionality" of gender, sexuality, and misogyny, and also introduce a useful historical dimension through a comparative analysis of speeches by former presidential candidates Margaret Chase Smith (1964), Shirley Chisholm (1972), and Hillary Clinton (2006 and 2016). The next five papers explore the relationships among race, ethnicity, and religion in US politics. Given the growing importance of the Latinx vote, the aptly titled essay "I Am Your Tomorrow" is especially important. The final five chapters include a mixture of topics and individuals (e.g., Clinton, Donald Trump, Roy Moore of Alabama, Sarah Palin). . . Summing Up: Recommended.
