Statement of responsibility
Betty J. Kramer, Edward H. Thompson, editors
Today, more and more caregivers are male. Despite this fact, the vast majority of research on caregiving has centered on the experience of the female caregiver. This volume addresses the fundamental gap in our knowledge and theories about the growing male subpopulation of caregivers. The authors identify the serious limitations that result from viewing men caregivers through the lens of women's experiences and call for an unbiased and fresh perspective in future research. Special consideration is given to men who care for a family with dementia; fathers of adult children with mental retardation; gay male caregivers for partners with AIDS; and sons and parent care
