This volume addresses an issue that was until recently taboo: children fathered by Black American GIs who were stationed in Europe during and after World War II and whose mothers were local citizens. They were born into societies that defined themselves as White and rejected this extremely visible portion of the so-called occupation children. Black and White are in this volume not (only) understood as descriptions of skin color, but above all as social constructs and political categories with racist attributions and effects. The authors of the contributions examine the manner in which these mixed-race children and their mothers were treated by their societies and the respective authorities; they assess the experiences and self-understandings of the individuals affected; they discuss their institutionalization and the strategy practiced by the youth welfare agencies of giving these children up for adoption abroad; and finally they highlight how African American couples in the USA interpreted the adoption of these mixed-race children from Europe as an act of Black resistance against White supremacy.

This book is the first critical introduction to the subject of 'race' and health in contemporary Britain and fills a vital gap in the existing literature. Written by leading black and white academic researchers, policy analysts and service providers, committed to achieving anti-racist change, the book provides an analysis of the health and health care of Britain's black population within the context of political, economic and institutional structures and the ideology of racism. Contributions cover: politics of health research; areas of current health concern such as mental health, maternity services and care of the elderly; and health policy issues such as equality in service delivery, employment in the NHS, NHS reforms and health promotion. The book reviews and advances debates in health research and health care delivery in relation to black populations. It is vital reading for students and teachers in the social sciences (especially sociology of health, 'race' relations and social policy), public health and health promotion, nursing, and social work as well as for health service managers, policymakers and community organizations.

The author offers an original explanation of why modern life makes us feel like losers, even if we are winners. He shows that the way we live now, rather than genes, induces in our bodies low levels of serotonin, the "happiness brain chemical" and he maps pathways to recovery from low serotonin for the individual and the community.

This book explores the overlooked history of racial mixing in Britain during the course of the twentieth century, a period in which there was considerable and influential public debate on the meanings and implications of intimately crossing racial boundaries. Based on research that formed the foundations of the British television series Mixed Britannia, the authors draw on a range of firsthand accounts and archival material to compare ‘official’ accounts of racial mixing and mixedness with those told by mixed race people, couples and families themselves. Mixed Race Britain in The Twentieth Century shows that alongside the more familiarly recognised experiences of social bigotry and racial prejudice there can also be glimpsed constant threads of tolerance, acceptance, inclusion and ‘ordinariness’. It presents a more complex and multifaceted history of mixed race Britain than is typically assumed, one that adds to the growing picture of the longstanding diversity and difference that is, and always has been, an ordinary and everyday feature of British life.
