Dimensions of fatherhood
Sage Publications, 1985 - Family & Relationships - 464 pages
Dimensions of Fatherhood is a state-of-the-art compendium on fathering and the role of the father in the family. With the advent of the women's movement, there has been a corresponding interest in men's roles, especially nurturing roles within the family context. This book provides an interdisciplinary consideration of the theoretical, research and applied aspects of fathering for both professionals and students of the family. Fatherhood is considered at different stages of the life cycle, and in the context of different social environments. A chapter is provided on future directions for research on fathering.
