Fatherless Children by Paul L. Adams, Judith R. Milner, Nancy A. Schrepf

A broad-scale look at children without fathers, examining the causes and varieties of fatherlessness, the consequences of growing up without a father, the social conditions surrounding fatherlessness, and the implications for therapy with such children. Surveys all relevant research, including the effects of fatherlessness on the child's academic adjustment, sex role identification, delinquent behavior, and mental health/mental disorder. Also includes a feminist critique of the role of the father in the child's development.
