This volume presents a history of the legal regulation of inter-racial relationships. As late as the 1960s states could still legally punish minorities that had sex with or married persons outside their racial groups. For Moran, interracial relationships affects not only racial identity and equality, but also sexual, marital and family autonomy as well. The historical analysis addresss Blacks, Asian Americans, Latinos and Native Americans, all of whom faced formal or informal barriers to intermarriage. Moran also analyzes the consequences of racial regulation in the 21st century: high rates of same-race marriages still persist, census takers struggle to classify multiracial citizens, and intense debates continue over ""colourblind"" adoption and parenting across the colour line. ""Interracial Intimacy"" confronts the history and the present debates of inter-racial issues, while providing an analysis of the segregationisy legacies that fuel them.
