Eleanor E. Maccoby & Robert H. Mnookin, Dividing The Child: Social and Legal Dilemmas of Custody (Harv. Univ. Press 1992).

Abstract: Questions about how children fare in divided families have become as perplexing and urgent as they are common. In this landmark work on custody arrangements, the developmental psychologist Eleanor Maccoby and the legal scholar Robert Mnookin examine the social and legal realities of how divorcing parents make arrangements for their children.
