This is an extremely important book in support of our activism. It documents the abuses of courts and a whole system set up to take our children, money, property, and very lives.How much do you love your children? Then, How many books have you bought and passed out to politicians, pastors, or journalists? If you can buy a six pack of beer or go to a couple of movies, you can buy this book.Patriotdad

Date: Sat, 3 Jan 2009 08:49:17 -0500Cumberland House Publishing is being sold, and unless action is taken soon, Taken Into Custody will go out of print. This is serious for two reasons: First copies will no longer be available. Second, if this book does not succeed, no other book on the abuses of family court and the divorce industry will be published for a very long time. Publishers make decisions based on what sells. If you want your own book published, please help with the success of this one.This is urgent, as it could go out of print in a matter of days.Two things must be done:First, we need to sell as many copies as possible while the book is still in print. Now is the time to buy copies and urge others to do so. To order, go to the TIC page on Amazon here.Second, if you have any media contacts, now is the time to use them. I need more radio and TV exposure to keep the book alive.To assist you, Mike Seeber and Molly Olson have produced the following terrific 2-minute video, which is now up on YouTube. Please distribute this to your media contacts and local officials:

By Stephen Baskerville
Why is the American family in crisis? Dr. Stephen Baskerville argues that the most direct cause is the divorce industry: 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 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 plundering 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 willfully 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.
The legal industry does not want you to hear this story. Radical feminists, bar associations, and social work bureaucracies have colluded to suppress this information. Even civil libertarians look the other way. Yet it is a reality for tens of millions of Americans.
STEPHEN BASKERVILLE, Ph.D., is associate professor of government at Patrick Henry College. He holds a PhD from the London School of Economics and is a Fellow at the Howard Center for Family, Religion, and Society. The author of more than eighty articles on fatherhood and family issues, he has appeared widely on national radio and television programs.

Taken Into Custody featured on Albert Mohler's Blog.Joseph D'Agostino's review in the influential weekly, Human Events:"Since unilateral divorce was adopted in the 1970s, millions of innocent parents have lost their fundamental right to raise their own children to an array of government officials and "experts," such as judges, lawyers, psychotherapists, social workers, child protective services, child support enforcement agents, mediators, counselors, and feminist groups. Dr. Baskerville documents injustices to children and fathers that might otherwise seem beyond belief. He exposes the distortions and fabrications propagated by the divorce industry to rationalize confiscating children from their parents. This is must reading for everyone who loves children, family, or justice."(More reviews below.)
"At long last, Stephen Baskerville in Taken Into Custody: The War Against Fathers, Marriage and the Family, has made the case for the critical importance of fathers in bringing up children. His view, that fathers are the victim of discrimination in the court system in this country, is absolutely correct. Hopefully this book will begin a counter revolution so that fathers will be seen as essential to raising a family. The only successful families, by and large, are those with BOTH parents and children. This book has long been needed, and Dr. Baskerville is absolutely the right person to have written it." -- Phyllis Schlafly, President, Eagle Forum
-- Paul M. Weyrich, Hon. PhD, Chairman and CEO, Free Congress Research and Education Foundation
"Taken Into Custody exposes the corruption of the divorce industry – lawyers paid to destroy marriages, courts who do their bidding, and bought state legislators. It is must reading by millions who lost access to their children, but also by church leaders whose support is essential if Stephen Baskerville’s reforms are to have a chance. The danger of gay marriage is trivial compared to the carnage of divorce explored here."
"Baskerville has exposed a major abuse of power that is not only responsible for destroying families and for the social disorder that ensues from that. It also rationalizes massive government spending and violations of our constitutional freedoms by courts, bureaucracies, and other arms of the state. Today's social crisis is not the product of impersonal social forces to which we must resign ourselves. It is the logical culmination of the modern state's perpetual drive to create problems for itself to solve. This book powerfully reveals the interconnected threats to the family, accountable government, and freedom." -- Michael J. McManus, President and Co-Founder, Marriage Savers
"No-fault divorce, in practice, means unilateral divorce. When one parent is divorced against his will, that means the state must enforce the separation of that parent from his (or sometimes her) children and home. That means the state will intrude in the most personal areas of the family’s life, in effect, obliterating the distinction between public and private. These are the key insights of Stephen Baskerville’s important new book, Taken into Custody. Everyone concerned about the condition of marriage and children should read this book." -- Grover Norquist, President, Americans for Tax Reform
-- Jennifer Roback-Morse, PhD, economist and author, Smart Sex: Finding Life-long Love in a Hook-up World
"Stephen Baskerville' s Taken into Custody powerfully depicts the myriad cruelties and injustices currently being visited upon American fathers."
-- Glenn Sacks, columnist and talk radio host
