520    "The book explores the rise of civil divorce in Victorian 
       England, the subsequent operation of a fault system of 
       divorce based solely on the ground of adultery, and the 
       eventual piecemeal repeal of the Victorian era divorce law
       during the Interwar years. The legal history of the 
       Matrimonial Causes Act 1857 is at the heart of the book. 
       The Act had a transformative impact on English law and 
       society by introducing a secular judicial system of civil 
       divorce. This swept aside the old system of divorce that 
       was only obtainable from the House of Lords and 
       inadvertently led to the creation of the modern family 
       justice system. The book argues that only through 
       understanding the legal doctrine in its wider cultural, 
       political, religious and social context is it possible to 
       fully analyse and assess the changes brought about by the 
       Act. The major developments included the end of any 
       pretence of the indissolubility of marriage, the statutory
       enshrinement of a double standard based on gender in the 
       grounds for divorce, and the growth of divorce across all 
       spectrums of English society. The Act was a product of 
       political and legal compromise between conservative forces
       resisting the legal introduction of civil divorce and the 
       reformers who demanded married women receive equal access 
       to the grounds of divorce. Changing attitudes towards 
       divorce that began in the Edwardian period led to a 
       gradual rejection of Victorian moral values and the repeal
       of the Act after eighty years of existence in the Interwar
       years. The book will be a valuable resource for academics 
       and researchers with an interest in Legal History, Family 
       Law, and Victorian Studies"--|cProvided by publisher
