Bibliography on Racism.
National Inst. of Mental Health (DHEW), Rockville, MD. Center for Minority Group Mental Health Programs.
Racism in this country is a product of more than 300 years of systematic subordination of Indians and blacks by the white majority, plus later subordination of still other groups. Research dealing with the manifold role of racism in mental health has been sadly underrepresented as a proportion of the total work in the mental health field. Frequently, social aspects of mental health have been overlooked. This publication is an initial effort by the Center for Minority Group Mental Health Programs of the National Institute of Mental Health toward generating the necessary machinery for compiling and abstracting the results of research and experience in the field. The Center hopes that this annotated bibliography will encourage the growth of scholarly works on the relationship between racism and mental health to develop as a legitimate and honorable effort for doctoral and postdoctoral training. This bibliography was developed from the scientific information files of the National Clearinghouse for Mental Health Information of the National Institute of Mental Health, and contains a comprehensive listing of all abstracts relating to racism available from the computerized information files of the Clearinghouse at the time of publication. The indexes were generated from the Clearinghouse files utilizing the IBM KWOC System. (Author/JM)
