Marginalization of Fatherhood in Western Countries.
Gillis, John R.
Childhood: A Global Journal of Child Research, v7 n2 p225-38 May 2000
Examines pressures on extant definitions of fatherhood from economic globalization. Maintains that men at both ends of the social scale have found it difficult fulfilling the traditional breadwinner role. Notes many in developed countries see the growing incidence of "fatherless families" as a major crisis. Concludes it is important to realize that the father-child relationship has always been problematic. (Author/KB)
