Beschreibung

Many fathers are now providing hands-on, engaged care to babies and young children. This book draws on observations of, and interviews with, caregiving fathers, as well as analyses of fathers' memoirs and online blogs, to examine fathers' caregiving work as embodied practice and as lived experience.

Zusammenfassung
'By placing embodied caregiving centre stage, Gillian Ranson offers an original contribution to debates about the nature of contemporary fatherhood. Her persuasive argument that the "grunt work" of caring for young children is transformative for individual men extends our current thinking. Essential reading for anyone interested in fathering'-Esther Dermott, University of Bristol, UK

'This is a beautifully crafted ethnography. Gillian Ranson [...] makes important contributions to scholarship and public understandings of fathering, embodied care, and the transformative effects of that care. Through its compelling evidence, this book confirms long-standing, but still urgent, feminist arguments about men's capacity to care.'-Andrea Doucet, Brock University, Canada
