About the Book

Children's rights, parents' rights, and the state's obligations toward children are widely debated, controversial concerns. Indeed, the clash of state and family has lead to some of America's highest profile cases. This collection of facsimile reprints brings together legal cases and critical essays affecting three key areas of American law-the obligation of the state to ensure the protection of children, the obligations of the state to educate children, and the rights of children against the state. Articles discuss the major rulings concerning an array of hotly debated issues, including the definition of a parent, restrictions on gay and lesbian adoption, visitation rights, and the use of corporal punishment; a minor's right to contraception, abortion, medical care, and free speech; and the state's obligation to protect children, jail children, school children, and intervene on a child's behalf. Students of American culture and history, as well as law, will find this a useful resource. Available as a full set or individually, the volumes include:
* Vol. 1: "The State as Child" "Protector"
352pp* 0-415-93804-X
* Vol. 2: "The State and the Schooling of Children"
352 pp* 0-415-93805-8
* Vol 3. "Child vs. State"
352pp* 0-415-93806-6]
