About this book

The first study of its kind, this book traces 150 years of the history of fatherhood in Scandinavia and shows how Scandinavian gender equality policy has important implications for the rest of the world. Among other interesting findings, Lorentzen reveals that the modern-day rise in equality fathering can be traced back to the 19th century.

Reviews

“The History of Fatherhood in Norway, 1850-2012 is a valuable contribution to the literature on men’s history and fatherhood. Written for students of masculinities, historians and general audience, the book offers an account of historical developments to frame a general understanding of how fatherhood is depicted. … the manuscript provides an important source for researchers aiming to conduct ethnographical work on Norwegian masculinities and also contributes to the knowledge on men’s lives and experiences.” (Selin Akyüz, Masculinities Journal, Issue 7, February, 2017)
