Paul Kellstedt examines variation in Americans' racial attitudes over the last half-century, particularly in the relationship between media coverage and American public opinion. His analyses reveal that racial policy preferences have evolved in an unpredicted way over the past fifty years. Sustained periods of liberalism, invariably followed by eras of conservatism, respond to cues presented in the national media. Kellstedt examines this relationship between attitudes on the two major issues of the twentieth century--race and the welfare state.
