Based on ten years of further study, this Second Edition of Father Hunger details the origins of the syndrome and its effect on the family, with new practical solutions to help dada and daughters understand and improve their relationships. Dr. Maine also introduces the concept of ''Global Girls'' which describes today's adolescents in terms of the globalization of media, corporate marketing, and body image. An expanded section for educators and therapists offers strategies and techniques for preventing impasses in treatment.

A theme that obsessed Shakespeare in over 20 plays from Titus Andronicus to The Tempest was the relationship between a daughter and her father. This study traces chronologically the development of this theme, relating it to the little we know of his own two daughters, and sheds new light on his exploration of the family that so dominated his approach to drama. Drawing on a lifetime's experience of playing Shakespearean roles, Oliver Ford Davies, a former university lecturer and now an Honorary Associate Artist of the RSC and Olivier Award winner, has written an engaging and deeply researched study of a topic that has intrigued him from playing Capulet in 1967, King Lear in 2002, to Polonius in 2008.

At last! A no-nonsense, entertaining, and insightful book for dads and daughters who want more from their relationship--or who want to understand and rebuild it on an adult level. Dr. Linda Nielsen addresses the questions that daughters and dads regularly ask her--and a lot more.

With candor and humor, BETWEEN FATHERS AND DAUGHTERS exposes the half-truths, downright lies, and family dynamics that prevent so many dads and daughters from having a more relaxed, more meaningful, more communicative relationship, regardless of age. Explaining why most daughter-dad relationships haven't reached their full potential or have unraveled, Nielsen provides hope as she shows fathers and daughters how to make changes now!

Dr. Earl Henslin, explores how the father-daughter relationship affects the adult daughter. Father-daughter relationships damaged by abuse, betrayal and abandonment can be healed and reconnected through understanding and forgiveness. "You Are Your Father's Daughter" is a book for adult daughters (and fathers) who want to heal or improve the father-daughter connection. It helps readers understand that a daughter's relationship with her father -- positive or painful -- affects who she is today. A daughter's relationship with her father -- positive or painful -- affects who she is today. Every daughter has a deep, God-given need to be nurtured by her father. It is vital to a woman's development. A strong emotional and spiritual connection between a father and his daughter empowers her to achieve her God-given potential in the life. It provides a secure and safe foundation from which she can venture into the world. When the father-daughter connection is missing or broken by abuse, the daughter is robbed of the personal identity, feminine strength, private boundaries, self-respect, emotional health, and spiritual understanding that a godly father can give. This loss and the painful wound that results affects every area of her life -- relationships with men, role in the workplace, search for love and meaning in life. Dr. Henslin offers hope and healing to every daughter who knows the pain and loss of a broken, missing, or less-than-perfect father-daughter relationship. His compassionate understand and spiritual insight provide a pathway for restoration and a process for rebuilding the father-daughter bridge.

Though Shakespeare and Shaw lived 300 years apart, they used similar techniques to dramatize the interactions of fathers and daughters. The daughters literally represent a challenge to patriarchy and metaphorically extend that challenge to such institutions as church and state. By exploring social issues through the relationships of fathers and daughters, Shakespeare and Shaw were able to avoid the watchful eyes of censors and comment on such topics as the divine right of kings, filial bonds of obedience, and even regicide.

Current feminist theory has developed powerful explanations for some women writers' rebellion against patriarchy. But other women writers did not rebel; rather, they supported and celebrated patriarchy. Examining the lives and selected works of two late eighteenth-century writers, Hannah More and Maria Edgeworth, this book explores what it means for a woman writer to identify with her father and the patriarchal tradition he represents. Kowaleski-Wallace exposes the psychological, social, and historical factors that motivated such an identification, and reveals the consequences that result from being a "daddy's girl."
