Reviews

Already recognized as one of the leading modern students of English social history on the basis of works such as The Crisis of the Aristocracy (Oxford Univ. Pr., 1965) and An Open Elite? (Oxford Univ. Pr., 1984) , Stone now brings to bear his ample research skills and incisive analytical abilities in a detailed study of divorce in modern England. This is a study of sexual attitudes, the governance of religion in the affairs of humanity, and law , but most of all it is a shrewd assesssment of moral values. It offers a balanced view of a topic that has long needed a historian, and while the subject alone guarantees controversy, there can be no arguing that the author has plowed new and fertile ground. Essential for all academic collections, this work cuts across a host of disciplines.--James A. Casada, Winthrop Coll., Rock Hill, S.C.
