How does that search work?

Franklin Catalog uses Library of Congress subject headings and subject heading subdivisions to describe books, videos, and audio recordings.

Several subject heading clusters describe the topics covered by Radical Equations:

Slavery -- Political aspects -- United States -- History.
African Americans -- History.
United States -- Race relations.

Combine these subject headings using OR for synonyms, gather the synonym groups within parentheses, and separate the synonym groups with AND.

And here's the resulting Franklin Catalog keyword expert search:

Subject Keyword Search : slavery AND ("race relations" OR "political aspects") AND history AND "united states"
