Blurb/Shorttext:
This book provides an understanding of the challenges and meanings attached to being in an interracially mixed relationship. Mixed- race families and couples have been and will continue to be marginalized as they challenge the dominant socially constructed views or discourse about the family. The discussion of the experiences, perceptions, challenges and identity construction of mixed-race couples within the context of the history of some of the South African race related legislation (for example: The Population Registration Act of 1950, The Group Areas Act of 1950, The Prohibition of Mixed Marriages Act of 1949 and The Immorality Act of 1957) provides a unique account of the process of race mixing. This book offers a comprehensive and insightful analysis based on extensive quotations. It provides an understanding of the processes involved when people break or shift the racial boundaries between the in-group and the out-group, and will be invaluable reading to professionals and scholars in family studies, race and ethnic studies, family psychology and sociology, as well as to mixed-race couples, parents and children.
