The Garbage Generation by Daniel Amneus
Today's judges are virtual accessories to child abuse when they place children in female-headed households where they are far more likely to be mistreated, neglected, impoverished and delinquent.
ISBN 0-9610864-5-9 Primrose Press 1991

Farewell to the Family by Patricia Morgan
Government policies are undermining the family, as rising numbers of lone-parent families, divorces, out-of-wedlock births and the increasing popularity of cohabitation testify. Large numbers of unattached and predatory males who have never taken on the responsibilities of family life, or who have been ejected from families, now meet the classic conditions for the creation of a 'warrior class'.

The Sex Change Society: Feminised Britain and the Neutered Male by Melanie Phillips
This book is recommended to anyone interested in getting an insight into the machinations surrounding the gender debate. It is an excellent and hard hitting book and many will, I expect, enjoy what Melanie has to say about Family Law.

The Myth of Male Power by Warren Farrell
Why men are the disposable sex. Earning money that someone else spends while you die sooner is not power. It has been overwhelmingly men who have died for their country - and they have largely had no choice in the matter. Men do the worst jobs; they also dominate the suicide figures. Yet the belief that men have the power continues to keep women from understanding men and men from understanding themselves.

Fighting for the Family by Lynette Burrows
The childrens rights lobby is a paper tiger. It consists of a small number of individuals who form front organisations ask each other to sit on committees take evidence from each other and publish reports. The movement has no popular support... The rights which interest the lobby boil down to only two: the right of the children to behave badly without any chastisement, and the right to enter into any sexual relationship at any age without the knowledge and consent of parents. The agenda thus fits neatly with the stated aims of paedophile organisations which realised long ago that the only way to obtain access to children was to persuade professionals and campaigning organisations to demand freedom for children from any form of restraint. The book especially cites Peter Newell but also: John Pinkerton Christine Walby, Catriona Williams, Gerison Lansdown, Rachael Hodgkin Phillipa Russell, Martin Rosebaum, Zarina Curtz, Nicholas Peacy, Nicholas Doyle, Kathleen Marshall, John Tomlinson, Mark Vaugn, Penelope Leech, Allan Levy, Paul Cumo, Ann Weyman, Robert Smith.
