  • breaks out of familiar boundaries based on race/ethnicity and marital status at birth
  • focuses on the commonalities among nonresident fathers who are unable to support their children, given the mass incarceration and unemployment of the past two decade
  • shows how to re-orient policies affecting vulnerable fathers, their children and families from the perspective of a leading contributor to research, policy, and practice in this field over the same period.
