Economists have studied numerous fields of law for many years, but family law was virtually neglected until the early 1970s. It was only relatively recently that economic insights about the family crept into the consciousness of those involved in legal research.
The articles within this book explore a range of family law issues and include discussions on a variety of topics including cohabitation, births outside marriage, courtship, premarital contracting, marriage and parenting. The volume includes papers on the division of responsibilities between family and state, the effects of no-fault divorce, alimony, property division and child custody. There are also works on intergenerational transfers and the elderly.
There are 29 articles, dating from 1975 to 2004 Contributors include: D. Allen, G. Becker, B. Bix, L. Cohen, S. Lundberg, A. Parkman, J. Roback Morse, E.S. Scott, Y. Weiss, R. Willis
