In this ethnographic study, Terry Arendell gives voice to a group of divorced fathers on topics including: their rights as fathers; their relationship with former spouses; the injustices perpetrated by the ex-spouse and the legal system; the inherent differences between men and women; and the fractured nature of the post-divorce family. The author differentiates between

the strategies adopted by traditionalist divorced fathers and innovative ones, and suggests policy recommendations informed by this masculinist discourse.
