The Unexpected Legacy of Divorce By Judith S. Wallerstein, Julia M. Lewis, and Sandra Blakeslee (Hyperion; 347 pages; $24.95) Young Americans raised in families of divorce or remarriage have encountered unexpected difficulties in adulthood as they form their own intimate relationships. “The story of divorce is far more complex and the impact more far-reaching than we had ever imagined,” claim the authors of this study. The Trusted Advisor By David H. Maister, Charles H. Green, and Robert M. Galford (The Free Press; 240 pages; $25) In their book, this trio of management gurus contend that a better understanding of the role of trust in advising, negotiating, and managing complex relationships can bring greater professional success. Using as a model their “Trust Equation” — credibility plus reliability plus intimacy, all divided by self-orientation — the authors show how mistrust arises and how to cure it. They write: “At the core of earning someone’s trust is convincing them that you are dealing with them as a human being, and not as a member of a group or class or subset.” Modern Treaty Law and Practice By Anthony Aust Cambridge University Press; 443 pages; $44.95) Anthony Aust, a legal counselor at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in London, takes a practical approach with the law of treaties, writing from the viewpoint of a practitioner. He gives numerous examples of the problems experienced with treaties daily, not just when the treaty is the subject of litigation. Writes Aust: “Because of the central role played by the [Vienna] Convention [on the Law of Treaties], a good deal of the book is a commentary on it. I know only too well the frustration of trying to find out — and under pressure — precisely what an article of the Convention means and how it has been applied. I hope this book will go some way to help.”
