Margaret F. Brinig. Family, law, and community : supporting the covenant. University of Chicago Press, 2010.

KF505.Z9B755 2010

 

This book draws on research from a variety of disciplines to offer a distinctive study of family dynamics and social policy.  Concentrating on legal reforms, it examines a wide range of subjects including cohabitation, custody, grandparent visitation, and domestic violence and argues that family policy can only be effective if it is guided by an understanding of the importance of social capital and the advantages held by families that accrue it.

K5301.M34 2010

 

This book follows America’s legal relationship with war, both before and after the Nuremburg trials of the 1940s, and argues that the precedents set by the trials were revolutionary.  This edition has been revised throughout, with a discussion of the Bush administration’s policies on the laws of war after 9/11 and the effect these policies had on American power and reputation.
