It is widely acknowledged that children need structure, security, stability and attachment to develop and flourish. However, many changes have occurred in society which have changed the traditional family structure, including high divorce rates, increased mobility and women's liberation. This book sets out to explore what has happened to men and to fathers during these changes and transitions. The authors and contributors consider a wide variety of topics, including: the role of the father at different stages of a child's development; the missing father; loss of a father; grandfathers. 256 pages.
