KIRKUS REVIEW

An ExposÉ of American Divorce Practice, so reads the sub-title. The author has done an exhaustive job on bringing into the open all the strange twists and turns of the American laws on marriage, all the problems involved in obtaining divorce, the inconsistencies of varying laws, the dangers and pitfalls to avoid, the question of alimony, and of the penalties for evading it, etc. The points throughout are illustrated by case histories. The 49 different divorce provisions are not categorically listed, but information leading to the specifications for different states is indicated. A book, lawyers should have, as it stresses the human elements and the unexpected dangers, as straight legal records could not give them. A book people considering divorce will surely want.
