From the Publisher
"An outstanding collection, offering in-depth coverage of all the crucial and current issues in adoption law and practice. Families by Law is both a wonderful supplement to a traditional family law course or stand on its own as the perfect text for studying adoption in the United States today. I am thrilled to have this resource now available to those who teach or think about adoption."
-Carol Sanger,Columbia Law School
"This source book expresses Cahn and Hollinger's keen understanding of adoption law, combining classic articles, new material, and penetrating commentary on every critical and controversial dimension of adoption. Those fortunate enough to read this book from cover to cover will vastly expand their appreciation for adoption issues."
-Richard P. Barth,Frank A. Daniels Distinguished Professor, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
"A strong argument."—The law and Politics Book Review
"Cahn and Hollinger have covered diverse topics - from foster care, to attachment, to racial and ethnic identity in transracial adoption, to legal issues in gay and lesbian adoptions."
"A collection that will interest and assist psychologists who work with the wide range of children included in this book. I learned a good deal in my reading of these articles and find it easy to recommend the book to any psychologist whose clinical practice, research, or teaching includes consideration of parent-child relationships, adoption, foster care, child custody, and the significance of family for individual development and social cohesion. . . . Wide-ranging and provocative in its approach to the issue addressed."
-The American Psychological Association,
"The essays encompass the main controversies in the field, placing them in their historical and social contexts. The book will be very useful for courses focusing on this issue, and will serve researchers in welfare history, public policy, legal history, family history, and history of childhood."
