Mixed Feelings: The Complex Lives of Mixed Race Britons

by Yasmin Alibhai-Brown
£11.99   paperback  The Women (2001)

Mixed Feelings: The Complex Lives of Mixed Race Britons by Yasmin Alibhai-Brown Yasmin Alibhai-Brown's new book offers the sharpest and most informed insight yet on mixed-race Britain. Opening with an historical perspective, she traces up to the twenty-first century the reactions - often rabid - to mixed-race relationships, and the influences of imperialism and large-scale immigration.
 
With research drawn from couples, parents and children, she offers unique insight into the stresses as well as the strengths of links across the racial divide. In a penetrating, constantly questioning text, she asks why social policy makers have been so slow to deal with the particular problems of this growing and significant group.
 
The influence of race on national identity is a crucial current debate and this book gives voice to the issue, addressing difficult dilemmas but also suggesting positive solutions to the often instinctive reactions aroused by the breaking down of old barriers. An essential report into the future of the nation.
