This part of the Hornbook Series analyzes the law of domestic relations and how it has changed in recent years. Discrimination against women has been mitigated. The power to control personal relationships by contract has increased. Discrimination against illegitimate children has been removed, and the old fault-based grounds for divorce have largely been replaced by non-fault grounds. The financial aspects of divorce place more emphasis on divisions of property and less on alimony. Lastly, an entirely new jurisdiction has developed out of the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction Act.

Each year more than one million marriages end in divorce. Yet, despite the passage of the no-fault divorce laws over the past two decades, divorce has become more complex and expensive, and can be financially disastrous for wives of every age and economic condition. Today, divorce can mean a 73 percent drop in the woman’s standard of living while the husband’s rises 42 percent. In Getting Your Share, Lois Brenner, an expert matrimonial lawyer, shows women how to get financial security for themselves and their children under the current divorce laws. From choosing the right attorney to the final divorce decree and settlement, this book takes you step by step through the legal, tactical, emotional, and financial conflicts of divorce. You will learn about the opening legal moves, how to stop thinking of your husband as your partner, how to get an accurate picture of family assets, how to protect your children financially and psychologically, when to negotiate a settlement rather than go to trial, and much more. Whether you have been married two months or twenty years, have had a full-time career, have devoted yourself to raising children, or have done both, Getting Your Share provides information and understanding to guide you through this complicated crisis.

The Big Push

For over a century and in scores of countries, patriarchal presumptions and practices have been challenged by women and their male allies. “Sexual harassment” has entered common parlance; police departments are equipped with rape kits; more than half of the national legislators in Bolivia and Rwanda are women; and a woman candidate won the plurality of the popular votes in the 2016 United States presidential election. But have we really reached equality and overthrown a patriarchal point of view? The Big Push exposes how patriarchal ideas and relationships continue to be modernized to this day. Through contemporary cases and reports, renowned political scientist Cynthia Enloe exposes the workings of everyday patriarchy—in how Syrian women civil society activists have been excluded from international peace negotiations; how sexual harassment became institutionally accepted within major news organizations; or in how the UN Secretary General’s post has remained a masculine domain. Enloe then lays out strategies and skills for challenging patriarchal attitudes and operations. Encouraging self-reflection, she guides us in the discomforting curiosity of reviewing our own personal complicity in sustaining patriarchy in order to withdraw our own support for it. Timely and globally conscious, The Big Push is a call for feminist self-reflection and strategic action with a belief that exposure complements resistance.

This volume updates earlier editions to continue offering efficient, yet comprehensive, coverage of the issues in a standard Trusts and Estates course. Although the book is designed primarily as a student supplement, some teachers have used it successfully as the primary text, supplemented by statutory materials, for both the basic course and for more specialized courses. The text's multi-layered structure allows students to use the book in different ways, depending upon their needs. Students using the book as a regular supplement to a casebook can read the text and ignore the footnotes until they need more examples or greater depth. The organization tracks the basic approach of most casebooks, and where it differs from an individual book, the comprehensive table of contents makes it easy to find what students need. By discussing many of the cases found in popular casebooks, the text helps students understand how specific issues fit in a bigger picture. The footnotes carry the student-centered approach a step further by briefly discussing tangential issues, offering additional examples, and again citing cases often found in casebooks. Even if the text does not discuss "their" case, often it will cite the case and place it in context. Each case citation includes a brief fact description to provide more examples of the way general principles can apply in specific situations. Further, the footnotes include numerous cross-references to other sections of the book, to help students identify the interconnections holding the subject together.
