Shawn Johansen's Family Men brilliantly challenges many of our assumptions about men in history. Here we find real men, not sermon or advice book representations of masculinity: awaiting the birth of their children, raising their sons and daughters, worrying about their families. This book does for the social history of men what the earliest, best women's history did for women: examines what they wrote, how they felt, and what their lives were actually like. This is history that is both illuminating and moving. It deserves a wide readership.

Fathers were to teach their children religious piety and doctrine, while inculcating good work habits and the necessary knowledge to succeed in a mostly agrarian economy.

In this book, Shawn Johansen seeks to explode the myth of the cold and distant Victorian patriarch, whose domestic roles were limited to those of provider and disciplinarian. Using a selection of personal writings he contends that their domestic lives were much more complex, involving domestic chores, caring for children, and a more active role in parenting than previously thought.
