Reviews the book, The Cost of Racism for People of Color: Contextualizing Experiences of Discrimination by A. N. Alvarez, C. T. H. Liang, and H. A. Neville(see record 2015-40803-000). The book is divided into three sections: Theoretical and Methodological Foundations, Context and Costs, and Interventions and Future Directions. The first section of the book provides a context by examining the importance of studying racism while discussing methodological issues, such as intersectionality, self-report or subjective experiences of racism, and mediators of perceived racism. The second section of this book is where there is presentation of definitive documentation of the effects of racism. The third section of the book examined interventions and future directions in this area. Although much of this book involves a review of relevant material in how racism has affected communities of color, it is still important to be able to have such material in one place to serve as a resource for those of us interested in this topic. This book is recommended to those interested in demonstrating the effects of racism and in reducing such effects in the future. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2019 APA, all rights reserved)
