Editorial Reviews

?Rubin reviews major Supreme Court decisions involving the American family and contends that Supreme Court precedents in this area reflect an ideological commitment of the Justices to traditional conceptions of the family. The analysis of case law presented in this work is comprehensive; issues considered include legitimacy, marital status, abortion, contraception, teenage pregnancy, gender classification, and parent-child relationships.
