Interracial Marriages between Black Women and White Men by Dr. Cheryl Y. Judice offers an in-depth examination of interracial marriages from legal, social, and psychological perspectives. Dr. Judice provides a comprehensive analysis of interracial marriages between black women and white men and between black men and white women. The impact of the interaction between race, gender and class on interracial marriages is extensively explored.

Although the number and acceptance of interracial marriages have increased over time, both among black men who marry white women and black women who marry white men (a less studied area), Dr. Judice's analysis shows how race remains an important factor in selecting a marriage partner and in managing married life. The author highlights important distinctions between the experiences of black men who marry white women and black women who marry white men. She shows that although both are "interracial couples," their experiences are not the same.

Dr. Judice's analysis is strengthened by her thorough overview of the historical context of interracial marriages, and she shows how these marriages have been legislated and have evolved over time. For example, Dr. Judice examines laws that banned interracial marriages and presents arguments showing that such laws were mostly intended to keep black men and white women separated since historically, the opposite --- keeping white men separate from black women was never a major factor in American society.

For academicians and others interested in understanding the impact of race in interracial marriages, this book is a must have. Interracial Marriages is a clearly written, easy to read, extensive analysis that takes the reader inside the lives and experiences of the interracially married couples studied, making the book an illuminating experience throughout.

Despite being highly educated, accomplished, and physically beautiful there are hundreds of thousands of Black women that are alone who seek a spouse. There are considerable disparities between Black men and women which are a continuing problem, nothing new there. What is exciting about this book is the neutral stance of the author as she logically and scientifically investigates options for Black women seeking a husband and family, which might include marriage to a White male.

Dr. Judice was interviewed on November 21, 2009 on BlogTalkRadio. To listen to the podcast and hear her views and commentary in spoken form, cut and paste the following link: [...]

This book, which explores the dynamics of a minimally researched topic, greatly expands our understanding of a growing population. Dr. Judice's book addresses legal, social and psychological issues in a scholarly but extremely engaging manner. A solid addition to anyone's library.

This book is well written. The author uses many statistical measurements that provide a scientific feel to the prose. Interviews with 50 married couples limit the data; however, she presents many subjects about interracial marriages in a well written format. It is a knowledge-based book, not anything juicy or racy.
