Editorial Reviews

Taken together, the chapters in this volume attempt to understand marriage and the family, both the familiar social affiliations that are widely held to be at the foundation of the civil order and the legal principles and practices that constitute and regulate these relationships. The volume is divided into four parts: family life and moral theory, childbearing--new choices, parents and the state, and legal models and family dynamics. Most of the papers were originally presented at the AMINTAPHIL (American Section of the International Association for Philosophy of Law and Social Philosophy) conference on the family held at Pace U. in 1988. Paper edition (unseen), $15.95. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
