From the Publisher"Sanford Katz is one of a small group of still-active law professors who have written and taught in the field of family law for forty years or more. His long and varied experience has added special and valuable dimensions to his new book. Not designed simply as a history, it reflects the view that to understand contemporary family law fully, one must be familiar with the major shifts that occurred during the second half of the twentieth century."
—Walter Wadlington, Family Court Review
"Excellent, stimulating, and highly readable.... Family Law in America is not only indispensable for anyone seeking a conspectus of the law in the 50 States but for anyone who has a serious interest in the development of law and policy."
—Stephen Cretney, International Journal of Law, Policy and the Family
"Serves as a thoughtful statement of modern American family law This book is very useful for foreign lawyers and scholars interested in a readable study of this branch of American law. However, I also recommend in American law students and to non-family law practitioners looking for analysis of and insight into a dynamic area of legal practice and issues of importance in contemporary society. I highly recommend Professor Kats's book for domestic relation practitioners looking for a broader perspective than they can otherwise develop from their own narrow daily practice and experience."
—Massachusetts Law Review
"Family Law in America is a clear, concise, and detailed summary of modern developments in family law that combines legal analysis with social science research. Practitioners and social scientists will find this work a valuable supplement to the technical approach taken by most legal textbooks."
