Citing her extensive research into the sobering statistics and literature of di vorce, the author uses in-depth inter views with 60 divorced mothers to explore the problems experienced by these women. In the process she at tacks several popular assumptions: that divorce provides opportunities for personal growth; that post-di vorce problems are temporary; that reformed divorce laws give equality to women. She finds the woman's changed economic status to be at the core of the problem. It is clear from Arendell's sample that mothers an ticipating divorce frequently do not expect to encounter the difficulties that are well documented as common in divorce. This book provides eye- opening information. Recommend ed. Hilma F. Cooper, Cheltenham Twp. Libs., Pa.
