From the Publisher"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."
"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."

"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."
