Road to Divorce

England, 1530-1987

Lawrence Stone

A NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK OF THE YEAR: "A sure-footed and fascinating commentary....It is admirably solid. It is soundly researched. It would establish the reputation of a lesser man"--New York Times Book Review. "His energy and his achievement are stupendous....Stone's book...breathes new life into an old subject by advancing fresh hypotheses and much fascinating new material"--The New York Revew of Books. This rich account by an eminent historian tells the fascinating story of how the British have gone about divorce over the last few centuries.
