Adam Pertman, David M. Brodzinsky download



"...this serious, confident, and rigorous book discusses lesbian and gay adoption just as its precursors discussed adoption by heterosexual parents, and leaves the reader wondering, 'Why all the fuss'... The authors are all experts in their different fields and, together, have created a state-of-the-art collection of chapters ranging from historical and legal aspects, to social and psychological considerations, to practice issues including the assessment of prospective adopters and postadoption support. Everything you might want to know about lesbian and gay adoption, and which it is possible to know at the present time, is to be found in this important book." --from the Foreword by Susan Golombok, PhD, Centre for Family Research, University of Cambridge


"This text, with its emphasis on research, is quite appropriate as an academic and professional resource. Intriguingly, it also generally presents as understandable to a broader public audience. This volume is unique, in terms of its depth, and comprehensive, and it will serve as an essential tool for those persons interested in the topic of adoption by lesbians and gay men." --Stephen "Arch" Erich, PhD, Associate Professor of Social Work, University of Houston-Clear Lake


"This timely, informative, and authoritative book appears at a very important time, one in which it is increasingly recognized that adoption by gay men and lesbian women can provide supportive and much-needed care for the many children who cannot be cared for adequately by their birth parents. Many agencies will want to have copies in their professional libraries, as will professionals (psychologists, social workers, lawyers, judges) who make decisions about or support adopted and fostered children. There is no other book that covers this material, so it fills an important niche." --Michael E. Lamb, PhD, Head of the Department of Social and Developmental Psychology, University of Cambridge


"This volume summarizes our knowledge of lesbian and gay adoptive families, contributes to it, and points out directions for future research, education, and policy changes. It is an academic book...but should become an invaluable reference for adoption professionals, researchers, policy makers, advocates, and lawyers. Lesbian and gay adoptive parents and prospective parents may also want to read it." -- Dana Rudolph, Bay Windows


"This informative, authoritative collection of 11 essays by leading experts challenges the myth that lesbians and gay men are unfit to adopt and provides adoption professionals with best-practice standards... This superbly successful collection shatters the misconceptions and stereotypes surrounding adoption by lesbians and gay men and should be widely disseminated among legislators, social workers, lawyers, judges, and the general public. Summing Up: Essential. All levels/libraries." -- E. W. Carp, Pacific Lutheran University, CHOICE
