"Anna Gavanas brings a vital international perspective to a uniquely American phenomenon. Her approach to the fatherhood responsibility movement is that of a social anthropologist sensitive to culture as well as politics. The result is an original yet troubling portrait of contemporary American gender relations." -- John Gillis, Professor of History, Rutgers University
