In this extensively revised edition of an influential book, two psychiatrists assess the psychological consequences of migration and prejudice for groups as diverse as West Indians, Turkish Cypriots and Hasidic Jews. In their exploration of a wide range of issues, the authors conclude that mental illness can be an intelligible response to disadvantage and prejudice. Combining theoretical perspectives from such diverse areas as psychiatry and social anthropology, this standard text has been brought up to date with a comprehensive new chapter, and a detailed list of new sources and literature. The authors conclude that little has changed and that racism in Britain continues to affect the mental health of Black and other ethnic minorities.
