Questions about how children fare in divided families have become as perplexing and urgent as they are common. In this text on custody arrangements, developmental psychologist Eleanor Maccoby and legal scholar Robert Mnookin examine the social and legal realities of how divorcing parents make arrangements for their children.


An important book for those concerned with family policy: it clarifies the connections among various factors involved in the dissolution process with care and concern...[It] should...assist in refocusing divorce from reform efforts toward the difficult issues of enhancing cooperation and easing adjustments to lives after divorce. -- Alice Hearst Law and Politics Book Review Adds significantly to current knowledge about the roles of law, culture, and psychology in shaping the economic and parenting systems in postdivorce families...Gives a fascinating picture of divorce in process and the interplay between formal legal and informal practical arrangements. -- Barbara Bennett Woodhouse Contemporary Sociology


Eleanor E. Maccoby is Professor Emerita of Psychology at Stanford University and a member of the National Academy of Sciences. Robert H. Mnookin is Williston Professor of Law at Harvard Law School and Director of the Harvard Negotiation Research Project.
