Reviews and Endorsements

'A thought provoking collection of articles which will succeed at encouraging the reader to rethink marriage.'
- Windy Dryden

'This is a splendid book. It brings together the perspectives of psychoanalytic object relations theory and the clinical expertise with those of sociology, history and theology to examine contemporary marriage. Seen through this multi-coloured lens, the observations and analysis of marriage as an intensely personal relationship, are consistently thoughtful and often brilliant and original in their conceptualization. An important contribution to understanding the complex changes in ourselves and our society that should be widely read.'
- Judith S. Wallerstein, Ph.D.

'I greatly enjoyed this stimulating and thought-provoking collection essays, surveying as they do recent developments in marriage and the treatment of marital problems, illuminating these against the background of changes in the social structure, in religious observance and interest in spiritual concerns, in ethical, moral and legal issues, and in relations between the sexes brought about by feminism. Despite this great range of vision, skillful editing has helped to give the book coherence and unity, as well as ensuring its readability. It should interest all those concerned with marriage and the family, and I recommend it highly.'
- Robin Skynner
