520    Updated and revised with seven new chapters, a new 
       introduction, and a new resources section, this landmark 
       book is invaluable for women facing a custody battle. It 
       was the first to break the myth that mothers receive 
       preferential treatment over fathers in custody disputes. 
       Although mothers generally retain custody when fathers 
       choose not to fight for it, fathers who seek custody often
       win—not because the mother is unfit or the father has 
       been the primary caregiver but because, as Phyllis Chesler
       argues, women are held to a much higher standard of 
       parenting. Incorporating findings from years of research, 
       hundreds of interviews, and international surveys about 
       child-custody arrangements, Chesler argues for new 
       guidelines to resolve custody disputes and to prevent the 
       continued oppression of mothers in custody situations. 
       This book provides a philosophical and psychological 
       perspective as well as practical advice from one of the 
       country's leading matrimonial lawyers. Both an indictment 
       of a discriminatory system and a call to action over 
       motherhood under siege, Mothers on Trial is essential 
       reading for anyone concerned either personally or 
       professionally with custody rights and the well-being of 
       the children involved.
