Book description

Why is the family in crisis across much of the English-speaking world? Some point to cultural forces such as pornography, popular culture or secularisation, but Taken into Custody argues that the most direct cause is the divorce industry itself: a government-run system that tears apart families, separates children from fit and loving parents, confiscates the wealth of families, and turns law-abiding citizens into criminals in ways they are powerless to avoid. In more than half of divorces, one person forces it upon the other. 

In all of human history, this kind of crisis has never happened before. Indeed, today’s divorce machine resembles the totalitarian regimes of the last century. Like them, the government officials who exercise virtually absolute control over the private lives of Americans (and Australians) have never been held accountable to anyone. Taken into Custody explores it all:

• Why the “deadbeat dad” is not only a myth but a hoax, the creation of government officials and lawyers who plunder parents whose children they have taken away.

• How hysterical propaganda about domestic violence is destroying families, endangering children, and making criminals of innocent parents.

• The real causes of child abuse and how the abuse industry wilfully ignores them.

• What drives the rash of “parental kidnappings”.

• How family courts operate as if there is no Bill of Rights, denying parents their constitutional legal protections.

Taken into Custody exposes the greatest and most destructive civil rights abuse in America today. Family courts and Soviet-style bureaucracies trample basic civil liberties, entering homes uninvited and taking away people’s children at will, then throwing the parents into jail without any form of due process, much less a trial. No parent, no child, no family in America is safe.

 

About the author

Stephen Baskerville is associate professor of government at Patrick Henry College (Purcellville, Virginia) and research fellow at the Howard Center for Family, Religion and Society (Rockford, Illinois), the Independent Institute, and the Inter-American Institute. He holds a PhD from the London School of Economics and has taught political science and international affairs at Howard University (Washington DC), Palacky University in the Czech Republic and, most recently, as a visiting Fulbright scholar at the Russian National University for the Humanities. 

He began as a scholar of political theory with an emphasis on religion, and his first book is Not Peace But a Sword: The Political Theology of the English Revolution (Routledge, 1993). 

More recently, he has turned his full attention to the politics of the family in global perspective. He has served as president of the American Coalition for Fathers and Children (2005-2007) and serves as managing editor for the International Journal for Religious Freedom. He is currently at work on a book on sexual politics.

Baskerville is widely recognised as “the leading authority” (in the words of columnist Paul Craig Roberts) on the politics of divorce, custody and family courts. His writings on family and fatherhood issues have appeared in leading national and international publications, both popular and scholarly. His work has also been published by major public policy think-tanks, including the National Center for Policy Analysis, the Institute for Policy Innovation, the Howard Center for Family, Religion and Society, and the Heartland Institute.

Taken Into Custody … is a must-read for all who are concerned about how the family law system — in Australia no less than in the United States — is siding against men, and causing untold damage to society as a whole” — Bill Muehlenberg, CultureWatch (Australia)
