Rezensionen
"This book will definitely be of interest to those adoption professionals from within the disciplines of law, politics, and social work. ... It is also an insightful historical account of adoption policies, laws, international conventions, and local practices from around the world. ... O'Halloran's third edition of The Politics of Adoption is a literary mosaic of essential adoption-related discussion that belongs on the bookshelves of every adoption researcher-no matter the research or professional discipline." (Rhoda Scherman and Ashleigh Prakash, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 61 (20), May, 2016)
