    • Abstract:
      Race and Ethnicity: International Perspectives, Challenges and Issues of the 21st Century first builds off the existing multicultural attachment literature to explore the concept of contextual and developmental adaptations of attachment bonds as it intersects with therapists'expectations for immigrant families living in the United States. Next, the authors use pooled data from the 2004-2007 National Election Survey to assess how race, class, and ethclass perspectives account for middle-class Mexican Americans'support for a fundamental dimension of crime control ideology, namely, whether crime should be eradicated along a continuum from conservative-punitive to liberal-preventive measures. The association of in-school bullying with suicidal behavior in school-aged youth, with a specific interest in African American adolescents is examined, in addition to protective factors against suicidal behavior in adolescents. The cross-racial interaction of learners in a former “whites only” high school in South Africa is explored in an effort to understand their day-to-day life over a period of six months. Data were obtained from several sources including interviews with students, teachers, and administrators, focus group discussions, and observations.
