Black Faces in the Mirror

African Americans and Their Representatives in the U.S. Congress

Here, Katherine Tate examines the significance of race in the U.S. system of representative democracy for African Americans. Presenting important new findings, she offers the first empirical study to take up the question of representation from both sides of the constituent-representative relationship. The first half of the book examines whether black members of the U.S. House legislate and represent their constituents differently than white members do. Representation is broadly conceptualized to include not only legislators' roll call voting behavior and bill sponsorship, but also the symbolic acts in which they engage. The second half looks at the issue of representation from the perspective of ordinary African Americans based on a landmark national survey. Tate's findings are mixed. But, in the main, legislators' race does shape how they represent their constituents and how constituents evaluate them. African Americans view black representatives more positively than they do white representatives, even those who belong to their own political party. Black legislators, however, are just as likely as white representatives to sponsor and gain passage of bills in the House. Tate also concludes that black House members are more liberal as a group than are their black constituents, but that there is considerable divergence in the quality and type of representation they provide. The findings reported here will generate controversy in the fields of politics, law, and race, particularly as debate commences over renewing the Voting Rights Act, which is set to expire in 2007.

Fleming breaks new critical ground in charting Hemingway's preoccupation with writers and their roles as artists. The Face in the Mirror develops a largely overlooked theme in Hemingway's writing--his depiction of writers and the special problems they face, professionally and personally. From his earliest years, Hemingway was preoccupied with the artistic and ethical dilemmas of his writer protagonists. Fleming's book explores Hemingway's concern with writers and writing from the 1920s through the early 1960s.

When you look into the mirror, what kind of person do you see staring back at you? Is it the person in the mirror the kind of person you can be proud of, and that you have always hoped to become, or is it the face of a person who falls consistently short of God’s best intentions? The good news is – you don’t have to dismay, even if the person staring back at you is less than you hoped they would be. If you will turn to Christ, and trust Him to transform your broken, or lacking life today, He will create a ‘new you’ – one that you can be proud of being, and who will become an effective representative for Him. The choice is yours – you can either stay the same, or decide to make the necessary changes to your life, that will result in a lifetime of victory in Him. In Two Faces in the Mirror, Tom Cannon addresses eight (8) major struggles facing modern society, and gives practical, time-tested, biblical solutions to them all. And here’s the best part – if those biblical principles worked for others, they will assuredly work for you. How do we know that’s true? It’s in the Book, and God cannot (and will not) lie. Do you want to become the person God has called you to be? The journey starts now. Buy Two Faces in the Mirror today, and watch your tomorrows be transformed by the power of God.
