520    Based on a unique longitudinal study of 100 divorcing 
       families with school-age children, this book argues that 
       popular images of divorce - including those shared by many
       psychologists - are too individualistic, too negative, and
       too universalizing about an experience that can be very 
       different for men and women, parents and children, and 
       different kinds of families. The authors illuminate both 
       the positive and negative effects of divorce on family 
       members and family relationships during the first year 
       after parental separation, offering a nuanced, empirically
       grounded examination of divorce as a family system event. 
       Integrating compelling quantitative and qualitative data 
       into a comprehensive conceptual framework, this volume 
       will be received with interest by professionals studying 
       and working with families.
