Changing Minds, If Not Hearts

James M. Glaser and Timothy J. Ryan vividly show how political strategies can counteract the impulse to think about racial issues in terms of winners and losers. Their problem-focused research shows how communities can build majority support for minority interests, even in the face of emotionally charged group conflicts.
