Completion of a book manuscript under contract with the University of Kansas Press for the series, Landmark Law Cases and American Society (edited by Peter Charles Hoffer and N.E. H. Hull). It is the first in-depth historical examination of DESHANEY V. WINNEBAGO COUNTY (1989), in which the U. S. Supreme Court ruled that a child does not have a constitutional right to state protection from a custodial parent’s violence inflicted in the privacy of the family home. My study examines the case’s significance as a reflection of the complex relationships among private families, social institutions, and the law in late twentieth-century American society.
