Hacker: "Legalized Families in the Era of Bordered Globalization"

Prof. Daphna Hacker (Law Faculty and Women and Gender Studies Program) has published Legalized Families in the Era of Bordered Globalization (Global Law Series) with Cambridge University Press.  Here is the book description:

Providing a panoramic and interdisciplinary perspective, this book explores the interrelations between globalization, borders, families and the law. It considers the role of international, multi-national and religious laws in shaping the lives of the millions of families that are affected by the opportunities and challenges created by globalization, and the ongoing resilience of national borders and cultural boundaries. Examining familial life-span stages - establishing spousal relations, raising children and being cared for in old age - Hacker demonstrates the fruitfulness in studying families beyond the borders of national family law, and highlights the relevance of immigration and citizenship law, public and private international law and other branches of law. This book provides a rich empirical description of families in our era. It is relevant not only to legal scholars and practitioners but also to scholars and students within the sociology of the family, globalization studies, border studies, immigration studies and gender studies.

The book is available for purchase here on Amazon.
