Summary
"Nobody's Children is an intense look at how we treat children in crisis. Harvard Law School professor Elizabeth Bartholet, one of the nation's leading experts on family and civil rights law, challenges the accepted orthodoxy that views children as exclusive possessions of their kinship and their racial groups and locks them into inadequate biological and foster homes. She asks us to apply the lessons learned from the battered women's movement as we consider battered children, and to question why family preservation ideology still reigns supreme when children rather than adult women are involved." "Bartholet assesses promising new developments in the policy world, and warns of the pitfalls that threaten real progress."--Jacket
