Abstract

Men are ushered into fatherhood when their partners give birth, and likewise they are driven to be more or less involved through constraints imposed by other people. This dissertation asked why some fathers are more involved with their children than others and finds that not only fathers themselves, but also their parents, their partners, and their children can all drive involvement, as can men’s social class and national context.
