Adoption and Ethics, Volume 1: The Role of Race, Culture, and National Origin in Adoption What role does race, culture, and national origin place in an adoptee’s personal identity? To what extent should racial and cultural similarities and differences between adoptive parents and children be taken into account? This volume, first in a series developed by the Evan B. Donaldson Institute, provides a synthesis of current research, literature, and legislation in three areas: transracial adoptions, adoptions of American Indian children, and international adoptions. Arguments from all sides of these controversial issues are clearly presented, providing a complete overview of this important area of current adoption practice.
