Families Without Fatherhood, 3rd Edition
By Norman Dennis and George Erdos
Institute for the Study of Civil Society
$15.95 paper original
The authors argue that the traditional family system developed to equip children for their own eventual adult responsibilities, but they present evidence that since the 1960s there has been a weakening of these norms with damaging consequences. This Third Edition reproduces the now-classic 1993 text and adds an Afterword by Professor Peter Saunders, which updates the analysis and the statistics.
