Roopnarine, Jaipaul L., Ed.; Brown, Janet, Ed.
Little is known about the development and function of families in major Caribbean communities, an area composed of diverse ethnic and political groups, the majority of whom live on the edge of poverty. This edited book provides an interdisciplinary examination of Caribbean families, each chapter detailing studies dealing with family structures and intellectual, social, and clinical problems and their treatment. The articles are: (1) "Overview of Issues in Childhood Socialization in the Caribbean" (Hyacinth Evans and Rose Davies); (2) "Class, Race, and Gender Issues in Child Rearing in the Caribbean" (Elsa A. Leo-Rhynie); (3) "Family Socialization in an East Indian Village in Guyana: A Focus on Fathers" (Jaipaul L. Roopnarine and Others); (4) "Caribbean Fatherhood: Under-researched, Misunderstood" (Janet Brown, Arthur Newland, Patricia Anderson, and Barry Chevannes); (5) "The Idea of Childhood and Age of Sexual Maturity among Indians in Trinidad: A Sociohistorical Scrutiny" (Patricia Mohammed); (6) "The Status of Child Care Supports for Jamaican Families" (Kerida Scott-McDonald); (7) "Raising Children with Disabilities in the Caribbean" (Marigold J. Thorburn); (8) "The Impact of Parent-Child Socialization on the Development of Conduct Disorder in Jamaican Male Adolescents" (Claudette Crawford-Brown); (9) "Child Shifting: A Survival Strategy for Teenage Mothers" (Pauline A. Russell-Brown, Beverly Norville, and Cheryl Griffith); (10) "Issues of Reunification of Migrant West Indian Children in the United Kingdom" (Elaine Arnold); (11) "Mental Health Issues and Family Socialization in the Caribbean" (Jacqueline Sharpe); (12) "Clinical Practice with Caribbean Immigrant Families in the United States: The Intersection of Emigration, Immigration, Culture, and Race" (David A. Baptiste, Jr., Kenneth V. Hardy, and Laurie Lewis); and (13) "Toward an Integration: Diverse Issues in Examining Caribbean Families" (Jaipaul L. Roopnarine). Each article contains references. (KB)
