    Professor Walton's principal areas of interest, at the moment, are African American Politics, presidential elections, and public policy.  His current book (due out this year) explores and analyzes the manner in which the political context variable impacts and influences the political behavior of the African American community.  His large scale work on commemorative public policies is presently in the data collection stage.  This work has been underway since 1983.
