The effect of family changes on children's academic success is a new subject for study.

How does divorce affect a child's performance in school? When a parent remarries, does a child's academic performance improve? These are some of the issues examined in this book. By presenting data from a number of different perspectives, Jeynes (who has written articles for the Journal of Divorce and Remarriage) clarifies the relationship between family make-up and academic success. Divorce, separation, remarriage, living with neither parent, and other domestic relationships are explored in detail. The information presented is important because knowing the effects of family structure on academic performance can help teachers help their students perform to the best of their abilities. Although some parents might find this work of interest, only those able to decipher the data (i.e., professional educators) will find it of any use. While not an essential purchase, this book is suitable for both academic and public libraries. Terry Christner, Hutchinson P.L., KS
