Editorial Reviews


"Compiled of not only a wealth of current research, but also personal stories and questionnaires, the book is a comprehensive summary of the important issues around this topic. ... The highlight is undoubtedly the questions closing each chapter, which are thought-provoking and engaging. They guide the reader through chapters from the importance of the father-daughter relationship, into more unusual relationships and their effects, to a concluding encouragement to apply the findings to their own families or work. ... I would recommend this book to anyone interested in their own father-daughter relationship, and to professionals working in family therapy." - Elly McGrath, Spectrum Centre for Mental Health Research, Lancaster University, UK, in The Psychologist

"The [research] is very solid. ... I especially appreciate that it is up-to-date and interdisciplinary. ... The writing ... is high in clarity and accessibility. ... This book will be a huge contribution to the field." - Robert Crosnoe, University of Texas at Austin, USA

"This book ... will bring disparate research and information on father-daughter relationships together under one comprehensive "roof". ... The manuscript was engaging, informative, and interesting in a page-turning sort of way that textbooks usually are not. ... Sources were current and some of the very best in the field. ... I would definitely recommend this book to my Women’s Studies colleagues. ... It is ... a unique resource." - Brian P. Masciadrelli, State University of New York at Fredonia, USA

"Dr. Nielsen has summarised the available literature compellingly. ... I expect a strong demand, especially in women’s studies programmes and in courses for trainee professionals. ... The material is very readable ... [and] enhanced by ... the liberal use of quotes [that] bring the material to life. ... Professionals who do custody evaluations and reports ... would ... love such a book. ... It ... answer[s] questions that many of them face every day." - Michael E. Lamb, University of Cambridge, UK

"The marked growth that has occurred in research on the father’s role in child rearing and the effects of this relationship on youth outcomes over the last decade makes this book particularly timely. ... The material is presented in an interesting way. ... The use of active learning strategies is a valuable aspect of the book. ... I would seriously consider adopting this book ... [due to] its reliance on findings from the recent research and inclusion of multiple ways to enhance engagement in the material." - Sharlene Wolchik, Arizona State University, USA

"The book provides a quick and easily read reference and will acquaint readers with up-to-date research demographics, laws, and views on a variety of issues related to father-daughter relationships. ... The author's focus ... allows for a depth of coverage that is unique." - Harry Freeman, University of South Dakota, USA

"The citations are very recent. ... The author writes clearly. ... Appropriate for graduate students, faculty/scholars, and undergraduates in a variety of fields. ... I would seriously consider it for adoption." - Mark Fine, University of Missouri–Columbia, USA

"It fills a much understudied need. I know of no other book that addresses this issue. ... The author is clearly accomplished as a scholar with expertise in this area and a very accomplished textbook author." - Robert Milardo, University of Maine, USA, Series Editor
