Overview

For several decades the issues of race, identity and child development have been of major concern to policy makers and practitioners in social services. This book is a major contribution to this literature, and offers a radically new way of looking at some of these issues. Based on intensive research on inter-racial families with young children, the book reviews the previous literature relating to racial identity development, especially relating to children of mixed parentage, and shows much of it to be based on flawed assumptions. Using intensive observations and in-depth interviews with parents of children of mixed parentage the author shows the author shows the many ways in which inter-racial families deal with issues of identity and difference. He concludes with a discussion of alternative conceptions of identity, race and development which will provide both practitioners and policy makers with new ways to think about these issues.
