    schema:description "Sweden, Norway, and Denmark are home to more than ninety thousand transnational adoptees of Scandinavian parents raised in a predominantly white environment. Ben-Zion seeks to answer a variety of questions in this multi-sited ethnography, including: How do transcolor adoptees define their social boundaries and negotiate their social position in relation to ethnic Scandinavians and non-European immigrants? What are the different discourses and ideologies imposed on them by these social actors? She provides a unique perspective on how these transcolor adoptees conceptualize and construct their sense of identity along the intersections of racial, ethnic, class, family, and national lines. The book provides fertile ground for comparison by examining their cultural identity in a global context of cultural assimilation, integration, loyalty, membership, familial, ethnic and national belonging, and the experience of having a visible racial identity in a predominantly white environment."@en ;
