How and why does ethnicity affect children? How do children come to understand their own and others' ethnicity? This valuable volume, published in cooperation with the Society for Research in Child Development, focuses on these important questions. It provides a synthesis of research and theory regarding children's ethnic socialization, considers the impact of ethnicity within a developmental framework and discusses the implications of findings for education, mental health and community services.
