Praise for the previous edition: "...recommended for public and academic libraries."--Booklist "No other encyclopedia on adoption brings together equivalent interdisciplinary research and knowledge. It is extremely well organized, well written, and thorough...contains valuable information...Essential for all library collections."--Choice The Encyclopedia of Adoption, Third Edition provides accessible, up-to-date information in more than 400 concise entries and covers many new developments since publication of the previous edition. These additions include the Adoption and Safe Families Act, a federal law that was created to encourage the adoption of foster children, which has now been fully implemented by all states and has led to a drastic increase in the number of foster children adopted. Other key adoption issues that have been added or expanded for the new edition include laws concerning adoptions by gays and lesbians, tax issues, school and adopted children, birthfather rights, transracial adoptions, and international adoptions. New entries include: *Adoption subsidy *Child Citizenship Act of 2000 *Early intervention *Eating disorders *Fraud in adoption *Helicobacter pylori *Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) *Iron deficiency anemia *Language delays *Paternity testing *Sleep disorders *Substance abuse *Tuberculosis.Adamec, Christine A. is the author of 'Encyclopedia of Adoption', published 2006 under ISBN 9780816063291 and ISBN 081606329X.
