Abstract

Selective examples from the literature on interethnic adoption are reviewed focusing on the various factors influencing adoption results. Late age at adoption, neglect and institutionalisation are risk factors for the psychological and behavioural problems in adoptees and families. The review also analyses methodological issues and suggests ways of rectifying them.
