(p.105) 4 Mapping the Modes of Mobilization
Desis Divided

Sangay K. Mishra

University of Minnesota Press

Chapter 4 identifies three major modes of political engagement relying on selective elite mobilization: the trend of descriptive representation from white majority districts, the prominence of campaign fundraising as a strategy for gaining political power, and the prominence of lobbying related to home country concerns. All three forms lead to the mobilization of a very narrow segment leaving out the broader community from the political process that is in complete contrast to the kinds of ethnoracial mobilization predicted by the dominant models.

Keywords:   elite mobilization, ethnoracial mobilization model, campaign fundraising, descriptive representation, lobbying, home country
