Editorial Reviews


"Professor Bix combines the analytic skills of a philosopher with the rich doctrinal knowledge of an outstanding legal scholar to write a comprehensive book on family law that is both deeply theoretical and wonderfully informative. Every family law scholar and student should read this book-as well as any educated person who wants to understand the important themes and principles that define American Family Law. He has taken a massive and messy field of law and provided an analytic frame that is sure have a major impact on the way family law is understood going forward."
--Elizabeth S. Scott, Harold R. Medina Professor of Law, Columbia Law School

"Brian Bix delivers a succinct critical introduction to family law that accessibly lays out its major rules, trends, and history. The book elucidates significant principles and debates in the wide field of family law with great clarity, and still communicates the richness and complexity of the field. It will be enormously valuable to both family law students and scholars."
--Maxine Eichner, Reef Ivey II Professor of Law, UNC School of Law
