The is a brand new Abridged Edition of the very popular Family Law: Cases, Text, Problems. Family law is an interdisciplinary area, and the materials in this Abridged Fifth Edition reflect the numerous components, influences, and issues under the family law umbrella. The traditional version served a dual role as reference work and teaching tool. Users will find that this new abridged edition better serves the teaching function. The reduction in length has been achieved without changing the book's basic orientation.

This book is policy-oriented, with non-legal social science adressed in note materials to provide a rich and varied learning experience. Notes do more than call attention to difficult questions of legal doctrine and policy; they illuminate them. The authors use a problem approach throughout, in addition to comprehensive case law sources. Problems provide an ideal mechanism for students to acquire the ability to apply legal rules to concrete fact patterns.
