Family, Law and Religion examines the limits of religious freedom for families within both the English legal system and that of the United States. Its coverage includes the development of religious freedom; marriage and divorce; the upbringing of children; residence and contact orders in relation to children; adoption; religious education; and secular education. In a stimulating analysis of a subject which is much talked about, but which has had little coverage in previous legal texts, the author discusses: whether religious freedom can exist without a written constitution; the impact of international covenants and conventions on domestic law relating to the family; the limits of tolerance for religious practices relating to the family and the best interests of children.
