9781447319009: Father Involvement in the Early Years: An International Comparison of Policy and Practice

The institution of fatherhood is in transition, as men try to balance being active and involved fathers with meeting the demands of the workplace. This book explores these challenges in the context of crossnational policies and the influences of those policies on the daily childcare practices of fathers. Highlighting the increasing interest in the enduring impact of early life experience, the contributors present the most up-to-date research on father involvement with young, preschool-age children in six countries—Finland, Germany, Italy, Slovenia, the United Kingdom, and the United States—offering insight into the effects of different national policies related to parenting in general and fathers in particular.

Marina A. Adler is professor of sociology at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. Karl Lenz is professor and chair of microsociology and vice-rector for university planning at Dresden University of Technology, Germany.

Review:

“Adler, Lenz, and their colleagues paint a detailed picture of fathers’ involvement in child rearing in six countries. This volume represents a valuable addition to the cross-national scholarship on work and family and helps us to gauge how masculinity is evolving in culture, policy, and practice.” (Jerry Jacobs, University of Pennsylvania)

Book Description Policy Press, United Kingdom, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. Fatherhood is in transition and being challenged by often contradictory forces: societal mandates to be both an active father and provider, men s own wish to be more involved with their children, and the institutional arrangements in which fathers work and live. This book explores these phenomena in the context of cross-national policies and their relation to the daily childcare practices of fathers. It presents the current state of knowledge on father involvement with young children in six countries from different welfare state regimes with unique policies related to parenting in general and fathers in particular: Finland, Germany, Italy, Slovenia, the UK and the USA.
