"What is it like to be racially mixed in Britain? Is it different to be mixed Black and White than to be mixed Chinese and Indian? Do such people see themselves as multiracial, or do they hew to one of their ancestral identities? If other Britons see mixed people differently than they see themselves, is that a problem? In an era when more and more people are mating and marrying across formerly forbidden lines, and when mixed identity is a real option, how significant is race anyway? What is the future for multiracial people - and what is the future for race - in the UK? Peter Aspinall and Miri Song have answers to these questions and many more, based on systematic, wide-ranging social scientific research. Their conclusions are presented in lucid prose amid a wealth of survey data and compelling personal stories. This is an essential book for understanding mixed race in Britain." - Paul Spickard, Professor of History, University of California, USA

"If anyone asks what the next step in the research on multiraciality is, tell them to read Aspinall and Song. This is the next step." -David L. Brunsma, Professor of Sociology, Virginia Tech, USA
