This comprehensive book provides a balanced overview of the current research on divorce. The authors examine the scientific evidence to uncover what can be said with certainty about divorce and what remains to be learned about this socially and politically charged issue. Accessible to parents and teachers as well as clinicians and researchers, the volume examines the impact of marital breakup on children, adults, and society. Alison Clarke-Stewart and Cornelia Brentano synthesize the most up-to-date information on divorce from a variety of disciplinary perspectives with thoughtful analysis of psychological issues. They convey the real-life consequences of divorce with excerpts from autobiographies by young people, and they also include guidelines for social policies that would help to diminish the detrimental effects of divorce.

Alison Clarke-Stewart is Professor of Psychology and Social Behavior and Associate Dean of Research at the University of California, Irvine.

Alison Clarke-Stewart is professor of psychology and social behavior, University of California–Irvine. Cornelia Brentano is assistant professor of psychology, Chapman University, Orange, California.
