Stephen Baskerville

Stephen K. Baskerville (born October 15, 1957) is an American scholar of political science and is described by Paul Craig Roberts as a leading authority on divorce, child custody and the family court system.

Education and employment history

Baskerville holds a BA in International Relations from American University as well as a PhD in Political Science and History from the London School of Economics and Political Science. He has served as the president of the American Coalition of Fathers and Children, and has been featured as a guest on The Political Cesspool.[1]

Baskerville is currently a Professor of Government and Director of the International Politics & Policy program [2] at Patrick Henry College. He was previously Professor of Political Science at Howard University. He is the managing editor of the International Journal for Religious Freedom. [3]


In 1996 Baskerville published Not Peace but a Sword, dealing with the "political theology" of the English Civil War era, which was described by one review as "comprehensive".[4]

Human Events described Baskerville as both critiquing the ways in which these systems create individuals crimes and arguing that they create patronage systems and function at times to perpetuate the high levels of divorce that require the current large staffs in the system. It describes Baskerville's speciality as studying how public policy affects the family and working as an activist to change this policy.[5] Baskerville's book Taken Into Custody: The War Against Fatherhood, Marriage and the Family (Cumberland House Publishing, 2007) was described by Touchstone Magazine as possibly his biggest contribution to public policy debates.[6]
