This new book1 by the authors of Beyond the Best Interests of the Child2 also makes a major contribution to the field of family law. Concentrating this time on the subject of child neglect and abuse, the authors mount a powerful attack on state intrusion into families under current child protection laws. Like Beyond the Best Interests, this book has attracted wide attention and provoked intense controversy. It should be read by all those concerned about the law's impact on children and families.
