9780029347102: The Divorce Revolution: The Unexpected Social and Economic Consequences for Women and Children in America
From Library Journal:

Based upon interviews with judges, lawyers, and divorced persons in California, and data collected from that state's court dockets, this volume presents the first systematic examination of the social and economic effects of divorce law reform. Sociologist Weitzman concludes that while the abolition of grounds, fault, and consent has eliminated much of the acrimony previously associated with divorce proceedings, this, together with the institution of gender-neutral standards for property awards and child support, has resulted in increased economic hardship and social dislocation for divorced women and dependent children. Weitzman does not intend to extrapolate her data, conclusions, and recommendations to the whole country; however, it is reasonable to believe that they have national implications. Essential reading for legislators and family law scholars; highly recommended for public and academic libraries. Merlin Whitemen, Dann Pecar Newman Talesnick & Kleiman, Indianapolis
