This collection of facsimile reprints brings together essays in the field of American law relating to the controversial area of children's rights, parents' rights, and state's obligations toward children. Articles discuss the major rulings concerning an array of hotly-debated issues. These include the definition of the parent, restrictions on gay and lesbian adoption, visitation rights, 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.
