Free text Book by John Triseliotis based on a study in Scotland of a group of adoptees who requested information about their backgrounds at Register House in Edinburgh in 1969 and 1970. Filed with the book is a review by Rita Dukette of Loyala University (USA) who advocates that more importance should be given in adoption practice to the points Triseliotis raises in his book on the adoptee's need for "familial identification".
