CHOICE Review

Contributors to this volume are scholars from the disciplines of psychiatry, psychology, social work, and education. The collection deals with the ways in which long-standing oppression, deprivation, and poverty still affect the role relationships, psychology, and behavior of many blacks who have achieved middle-class status. Several chapters challenge the notion about the inverse relationship between economic stability and stress. Instead, they point out that a large number of middle-class blacks have internalized the effects of oppression (negative self-images, serious role conflicts, and self-defeating behaviors), which, in turn, have become sources of stress experienced by them. The contributors also observe that the stress generated by the negative effects is experienced more frequently and more intensely by blacks than by nonblacks, and that it tends to be more serious in black descendants of slaves in the US than in blacks from the Caribbean and from Central or South America. The collection makes an important contribution to the study of the family life of black people in the US. It merits the attention of scholars interested in racial and ethnic minorities, as well as parents, physicians, and other health service providers. Suitable for academic and public library collections. -H. S. Jassal, SUNY College at Cortland
