Abstract

Culminated from diaries, letters, magazines, surveys, and the transcripts of congressional hearings, this history of fatherhood in America traces the fundamental shift from nineteenth-century patriarch to twentieth-century "dad". The study argues convincingly that economic and social forces rooted in the Industrial Revolution have gradually nudged fathers from their central role in family life. [Publishers Weekly]
