The book offers a wide range of vantage points–social work, family studies, family therapy, counseling, sociology, psychology, gender studies, ethnic studies, urban studies, and health. Applicable in classrooms and treatment situations, Fatherhood in America offers fresh perspectives and keen insights through chapters authored by some of the country's foremost fatherhood scholars and clinicians
