Family Law / Edition 6by Judith C. Areen, Marc Spindelman
Pub. Date: 03/13/2012
Publisher: West Academic
The Sixth Edition continues a long tradition of innovation the casebook is widely known and prized for. Preserving the best of earlier editions, the casebook delivers an up-to-date overview of U.S. Family Law that weaves together black-letter rules, policy, narrative, history, transnational sources, and theory, into an accessible and teachable whole. The book is written with an eye toward helping teachers prepare their students to appreciate and engage Family Law’s incredibly dynamic present, and to begin imagining how to actively shape its important, vibrant future. The book is accompanied by a Teacher’s Manual and web site for adopters.
“The Sixth Edition of Family Law is more than an update of prior editions – it reconceptualizes the field of family law for the 21st century. This new edition was made possible because I was fortunate to be joined by two leading members of the new generation of family law scholars: Professor Marc Spindelman, of Ohio State University, and Professor Philomila Tsoukala, of Georgetown University. Their fresh ideas and new perspectives have enriched and enlivened the casebook in ways that should enhance its value in the classroom. Through judicious use of new historical and social science material, this edition illuminates current controversial issues in family law, and for the first time places American family law in an international context.”
--Judith Areen, Paul Regis Dean Professor of Law at Georgetown University, and Founding Author of Cases and Materials on Family Law
