A pioneering casebook, Child, Family, and State was one of the first books to explore the full range of legal questions relating to children — not just custody issues, but also the economic relationship within a family, abuse and neglect, medical treatment, state-enforced limitations on liberty, and juvenile delinquency. Meticulously revised from cover to cover, this Fifth Edition serves as the foundation of an enlightening course.

Longtime users will recognize these popular features:

  • provides readable, thought provoking, and comprehensive coverage of both children's rights and the juvenile court system
  • includes social and historical perspectives
  • uses down-to-earth hypotheticals to illustrate issues clearly
  • facilitates classroom discussion through stimulating questions in every chapter
  • designed for maximum flexibility in sequencing the material

The Fifth Edition presents new material on a wide range of issues:

  • protection of children from pornography on the Internet (Ashcroft v. ACLU)
  • software filtering in public libraries (United States v. American Library Association)
  • regulation of sexually explicit and violent materials in movies, music, and video games
  • sex offender registration
  • juvenile confession (Yarborough v. Alvarado)
  • juvenile death penalty (Roper v. Simmons)
  • fetal homicide victims (Unborn Victims of Violence Act)
  • child abuse implications of Crawford v. Washington
  • custody implications of Elk Grove Unified School District v. Newdow
  • custody relocation controversies
  • custody/adoption aspects of same-sex marriage
  • adolescent health risks
  • partial birth abortion ban and minors' abortion rights
  • minors' First and Fourth Amendment rights
  • school vouchers
  • curfew violations

In addition, this through revision:

  • is shorter than its predecessor
  • covers recent and pending Supreme Court cases
  • discusses new federal and state legislation
  • is accompanied by a Teacher's Manual that supplies answers to the questions and problems, and offers teaching suggestions
