As the practice of divorce mediation continues to grow, more and more professionals need training and literature to develop skills and perspective. A welcome addition to their libraries will be Divorce Mediation: Theory and Practice, edited by Jay Folberg and Ann Milne. In the preface, the editors explain that the purpose of the book is to examine divorce mediation from an interdisciplinary perspective. They achieve this goal with a series of articles written by professionals from such diverse fields as anthropology, sociology, psychology, law, and social work. Each article examines a different aspect of divorce mediation and provides the special insight that comes with the professional background of the author. The articles are rich enough in detail and contain sufficient practical suggestions that they will be of interest to the practitioner who has already received some training or had some experience as a mediator. However, the novice can also benefit from the book because of its panoramic overview
