Overview

The fatherhood movement has established itself as the most innovative and effective response to the most daunting crisis facing American families. Written by the movement's founders, this indispensable book illustrates the movement's methods for reconnecting men with their children and restoring the fragile bonds that hold our society together. This book is the manifesto of the fatherhood movement, and it provides valuable insights into the historical, social, economic, and spiritual dimensions of the 'disappearance' of fathers from society. Reflecting the complex nature of this problem, the contributors include activists, politicians, public intellectuals, and academics from a broad range of disciplines. They not only identify the root causes of the widespread withdrawal of fathers from family life, but also offer specific remedies on the individual, local, and national levels. This is a timely and important contribution to a topic of growing concern to all Americans.

Fifteen essays call for the restoration of dual (mother and father) parental arrangements as a necessary precondition for the health and loyalty of American children. The contributors argue in support of the view of one editor that "All human societies have recognized...[co- residency with children and a parental alliance with the mother]... as structural pre-conditions for effective fatherhood" and recommend ways achieve that ideal.
