Overview

How might a multiracial concept dismantle our negative construction of race? How do we redefine 'ethnicity' when 'race' is less central to the definition?

Each contribution opens with a personal sketch of the multiracial experience. Topics explored in the book include: the differences between race and ethnicity; colour, gender and sexuality in a multiracial context; and ethnicity and its role in identity formation.
