Exploring the conflict between respect for privacy and deference to state authority in the context of family law today, each chapter in the Eighth Edition of this popular Family Law casebook provides a lens to explore the appropriate role of the state in family decision making, and helps equip students to handle current and emerging family law issues. The book features riveting well-edited cases, notes, interdisciplinary materials, and problems that highlight issues of gender, sexuality, race, and class. Integrating legal developments with perspectives from history, psychology, sociology, medicine, and philosophy, this casebook uniquely reflects the full diversity of the modern family, including key updates on marriage equality and parentage issues for LGBTQ-headed families, nonmarital families, abortion, adoption, and assisted reproduction.
