"Lost Fathers. . . defines the battle lines. In one camp are those who think marriage and fatherhood are essential to socialize men, producing a stability which protects women and children and underpins liberal democratic society. In the other are those who believe that marriage is a patriarchal conspiracy against women, that gender differences are an oppressive social construct and that family life should be reconstituted around egalitarianism and androgyny."--Times Literary Supplement
