Volume: 7

Men's Studies

May 1995 | 336 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Recent social and cultural changes - such as transformation in the workplace, shifting marriage and divorce patterns, the growth of the women's movement and development of the men's movement - have all served to change the traditional family role of fathers and to force a re-examination of the interaction between fathers and children.

This collection of empirical and theoretical articles presents new theoretical models and the results of current research on the role of fathers in families. The articles cover differences in culture, class, nationality and custodial status and focus on legal, economic and policy questions.
