Situated Fathering: A Focus on Physical and Social Spacesby William Marsiglio, Kevin Roy, Greer Litton Fox
Seeking to overcome sociology's neglect of the sociospatial dimension in family relations, Marsiglio (U. of Florida) introduces 14 chapters that treat fathering from this perspective. Contributors study fathers/stepfathers' roles in diverse contexts: from those absent from the home due to divorce, incarceration, truck driving, or military service, to Mexican-American and farm fathers in their communities. Chapters conclude with questions for future research. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
