By Michael E. Connor (Editor), Joseph White (Editor). This book offers a broader, more positive picture of African American fathers. Featuring case studies of African-descended fathers, this edited volume brings to life the achievements and challenges of being a black father in America. Leading scholars and practitioners provide unique insight into this understudied population. Short-sighted social policies which do not encourage father involvement are critically examined and the value of father engagement is promoted. The problems associated with the absence of a father are also explored. The second edition features an increased emphasis on: historical issues confronting African descended fathers;  the impact of health issues on Black fathers and their children; the need for therapeutic interventions to aid in the healing of fathers and their children and more. An ideal supplementary text for courses on fathers and fathering, introduction to the family, parenting, African American families/men, men and masculinity, Black studies, race and ethnic relations, and family issues taught in a variety of departments, the book also appeals to social service providers, policy makers, and clergy who work with community institutions. Routledge Academic (2011), English, Paperback: 302 pages.


"An important contribution to the true image of black fathers in America... I enthusiastically endorse this book... It provides a broad integrated perspective that combines relevant theory and research... I am certain that it will be used in many college and university courses." - Robert L. Williams, Washington University, USA
