Additional Book Details

In her bold new edited volume, The Multiracial Experience, Maria P. P. Root challenges current theoretical and political conceptualizations of race by examining the experience of mixed-race individuals. Articulating questions that will form the basis for future discussions of race and identity, the contributors tackle concepts such as redefining ethnicity when race is less central to the definition and how a multiracial model might dismantle our negative construction of race. Researchers and practitioners in ethnic studies, anthropology, education, law, psychology, nursing, social work, and sociology add personal insights in chapter-opening vignettes while providing integral critical viewpoints. Sure to stimulate thinking and discussion, the contributors focus on the most contemporary racial issues, including the racial classification system from the U.S. Census to the schools; the differences between race, ethnicity, and colorism; gender and sexuality in a multicultural context; ethnic identity and identity formation; transracial adoption; and the future of race relations in the United States.
The Multiracial Experience opens up the dialogue to rethink and redefine race and social relations in this country. This volume provides discussions key to all professionals, practitioners, researchers, and students in multicultural issues, ethnic relations, sociology, education, psychology, management, and public health.
"Dr. Maria P. P. Root′s . . . discussions are thoughtful, analytical, and informative. Root argues that the emergence of a racially mixed population is transforming the racial character of the United States and that the increasing presence of multiracial people necessitates Americans to ask questions about their identity."
--Canadian Review of Studies in Nationalism
"Finally, in one volume, ammunition for the informed debate about what multiculturalism means in the United States."
--Lise Funderburg, author of Black, White, Other: Biracial
