The Father's Role in Family Systems: An Annotated Bibliography.
Wisconsin Univ., Madison. School of Family Resources and Consumer Sciences.
This bibliography contains more than 400 annotated references on the topic of the father's role in family systems. In addition to the standard bibliographic citation, each entry includes an annotation which summarizes, discusses, or evaluates the item. The annotations range in length from a few sentences to several paragraphs. An alpha-numeric code also accompanies each citation and is used to indicate the nature of the item (e.g., empirical) and the topic area (e.g. children's perceptions of fathers) to which it pertains. Citations are arranged in five sections. Section I features references on father-child interaction and the father and child development; it includes sub-sections on sex role socialization, gifted/talented children, and general literature. Section II contains references related to the fathering experience and the father role, with sub-sections on the biological and physiological aspects, the expectant father, the teenage father/unwed father, the black father, the single father, and the changing father role. Citations in Section III deal with father absence and are organized into sub-sections on physical absence, psychological absence, and the remaining female parent. Section IV contains references on general family theory and Section V on methodology. (JMB)
