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.

Review Quotes
Jerry Jacobs, University of Pennsylvania
“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.”
