Reviews

"An eye-opening perspective. . . . Anyone contemplating transracial adoption will find provocative ideas."--Publishers Weekly

"Provides profound insight into what it's like to be adopted from another race or into another nation."--Library Journal

"A valuable resource for those who believe that transracial, often international, adoption cannot be a curative measure--in the slightest--for the inequalities which stain the human experience."--Seven Oaks Magazine Review

"Outsiders Within is not the first book to explore the experience of being adopted across racial lines, but is perhaps the most challenging and ambitious to date."--American Adoption Congress Decree
