Overview

The social and legal boundaries of divorce have changed dramatically in recent years, making it an all-too-common occurrence in modern society. Yet only three comprehensive histories of divorce in Ameican have appeared in the twentieth century. In Beneath the Fault Line, law professor and historian J. Herbie DiFonzo juxtaposes legal doctrine and practice with popular culture and individual accounts to illustrate the history of divorce in America.

Beneath the Fault Line is a much-needed examination of divorce in twentieth century America and should interest students of family law and development, social work, and sociology, as well as a broader audience concerned with the history of the American family.
