Fathers and Sons Reviews


'Much needed in the fatherhood literature, this brilliant volume brings to life three generations of fathers and sons and shows how the experience of fathering and being fathered shape us.' Philip Hwang, University of Gothenburg, Sweden

'A fascinating analysis of fatherhood across generations, as recounted and interpreted by White British, Irish and Polish migrant grandfathers and fathers, and their transmission of fathering practices in the UK. It makes a most welcome and

innovative addition to the literature on families, generations and migration.' Eleonore Kofman, Middlesex University, UK
