In the fourth edition, all 17 chapters are fully updated to reflect the latest family law developments. Developments based on Obergefell v. Hodges are treated fully throughout the new edition. This popular family law casebook engages students with the significant changes to the American family and the corresponding evolution of family law doctrine and policy. The book emphasizes that contemporary families take a variety of forms, including marital and nonmarital relationships, and that constitutional considerations play an increasingly important role in family law. The fourth edition preserves and builds on the approach of the earlier editions: presenting core substantive family law doctrine while also exploring ongoing and emerging policy debates and discussing the importance of cross-disciplinary collaborations with experts in fields such as psychology and accounting. The book introduces the myriad issues central to family law practice and to a lawyer's ethical and professional responsibilities. New cases have been substituted where appropriate, and the notes following each lead case, statute or article have been thoroughly updated. In addition, new Problems expand the number of opportunities for actively engaging students. Contemporary Family Law highlights the issues of professional and ethical responsibility that arise in family law, not only by using Problems that invite students to engage in role playing, but also by devoting separate chapters to legal ethics, alternative dispute resolution, and private ordering. While providing a grounding in the historical and contemporary regulation of marriage, the book also devotes chapters to nonmarital couples and to establishing parenthood. The book also emphasizes concrete aspects of legal practice and professional responsibility by, for example, including material at the end of the first chapter on shifting paradigms within family law practice and the roles of family lawyers, by addressing jurisdictional issues in one integrated chapter, and by presenting problems for discussion in each chapter that enable students to apply doctrine in real-life settings that lawyers face. Moreover, because child custody arrangements lead to some of the most acrimonious family disputes, this casebook devotes two chapters to custody: the first treats the initial custody decision, and the second explores continuing litigation concerning visitation, custody, and key childrearing decisions after the initial disposition, including disputes involving third parties such as cohabitants and grandparents. Both custody chapters include disputes involving nonmarital children. New and expanded material in the fourth edition includes full treatment of Obergefell v. Hodges (2015), the Supreme Court's ruling on the fundamental right of same-sex couples to marry and to have every state recognize their marriage, and its ramifications throughout family law. This edition has added a separate chapter on nonmarital couples, including a section on domestic partnerships, civil unions, and other legal statuses in the wake of Obergefell; extensive coverage of debt and family finances, reflecting the current economic climate, as well as new material on how taxes affect families; substantially updated discussion of the impact of gender in child custody decisions and the current legal status of shared parenting; an expanded Section on the Hague Convention; detailed discussion of new and emerging reproductive technologies; and major revisions to the chapter on child support (including recent data on the central role of child support in low-income families). The chapter on private ordering integrates the new Uniform Premarital and Marital Agreements Act. Finally, the comprehensive 700-page teachers manual presents explanations and pedagogical strategies, including extended exercises, that will help new adopters design a rich course that meets their students'

p”Ein auch heute noch bedeutsamer Klassiker“ Daily Express Sind wir Marionetten unserer Gene? Nach Richard Dawkins ́ vor über 30 Jahren entworfener und heute noch immer provozierender These steuern und dirigieren unsere von Generation zu Generation weitergegebenen Gene uns, um sich selbst zu erhalten. Alle biologischen Organismen dienen somit vor allem dem Überleben und der Unsterblichkeit der Erbanlagen und sind letztlich nur die "Einweg-Behälter" der "egoistischen" Gene. Sind wir Menschen also unserem Gen-Schicksal hilflos ausgeliefert? Dawkins bestreitet dies und macht uns Hoffnung: Seiner Meinung nach sind wir nämlich die einzige Spezies mit der Chance, gegen ihr genetisches Schicksal anzukämpfen.

Der König aller Krankheiten

Krebs – eine Biografie

Page: 670

Die Geißel der Menschheit verstehen Seit über fünftausend Jahren lebt die Menschheit mit Krebs. Ebenso lange stirbt sie daran. Und doch gilt Krebs als eine »moderne« Erkrankung, weil keine andere Krankheit unsere Zeit dermaßen prägt. Bezeichnend sind die Namen, die man dem Krebs gegeben hat: »König aller Krankheiten« oder »ein Monster, unersättlicher als die Guillotine«. In seiner perfiden Perfektion, in seiner Anpassungsfähigkeit und seiner Widerstandskraft nimmt der Krebs beinahe menschliche Züge an. Seine Geschichte gleicht einer Biografie: Es ist die Geschichte von Leid, von Forscherdrang, Ideenreichtum und Beharrlichkeit – aber auch von Hochmut, Arroganz und unzähligen Fehleinschätzungen. Siddhartha Mukherjee widmet sich seinem Thema mit der Präzision eines Zellbiologen, mit der Kenntnis eines Historikers und mit der Passion eines Biografen. Fesselnd erzählt er von der persischen Königin Atossa, deren griechischer Sklave sie möglicherweise von ihrem Brustkrebs geheilt hat, von Erkrankten im 19. Jahrhundert, die erste Bestrahlungen und Chemotherapien über sich ergehen lassen mussten – und immer wieder von seinen eigenen Patienten. ›Der König aller Krankheiten‹ wirft einen faszinierenden Blick in die Zukunft der Krebsbehandlung und liefert eine brillante neue Perspektive auf die Art, wie Ärzte, Wissenschaftler, Philosophen und Laien den kranken – und den gesunden – Körper während Jahrtausenden begriffen haben.
