New Perspectives onnbsp;Racial Identity Developmentnbsp;bringsnbsp;together leaders in the field to deepen, broaden, and reassess ournbsp;understandings of racial identity development. Contributors include the authorsnbsp;of some of the earliest theories in the field, such as William Cross, Bailey W.nbsp;Jackson, Jean Kim, Rita Hardiman, and Charmaine L. Wijeyesinghe, who offer newnbsp;analysis of the impact of emerging frameworks on how racial identity is viewednbsp;and understood. Other contributors present new paradigms and identify criticalnbsp;issues that must be considered as the field continues to evolve.
This new and completelynbsp;rewritten second edition uses emerging research from related disciplines thatnbsp;offer innovative approaches that have yet to be fully discussed in thenbsp;literature on racial identity. Intersectionality receives significant attentionnbsp;in the volume, as it calls for models of social identity to take a morenbsp;holistic and integrated approach in describing the lived experience ofnbsp;individuals.
This volume offers newnbsp;perspectives on how we understand and study racial identity in a culture wherenbsp;race and other identities are socially constructed and carry significantnbsp;societal, political, and group meaning.
