520 0 |a Comparative in both approach and framework, with cross-referencing to English law throughout, this invaluable textbook provides students with a critical exposition of the key areas in family law, exploring their evolution and development within their historical, cultural, political and legal context. A critical and lively overview, it pays particular attention to the legal position of unmarried fathers, unmarried cohabitants and same sex couples and the state, within the context and effect of the Human Rights Act 1998. Divided into four parts, it examines: English family law, in particular the recent focus on children's rights, property relations and domestic violence, as well as examining other common law and civil law jurisdictions; the common law in Australia, New Zealand, some Far Eastern countries and selected American jurisdictions, alongside civil law jurisdictions such as France, Germany and Sweden; and, the Russian Federation, as an example of a hybrid jurisdiction.
