Abstract : This volume is concerned with the process of adaptation: the ways in which men responded to the stresses of war and captivity; the ways in which the family unit adapted itself to the prolonged and seemingly indeterminate absence of a father; how the returnee and his wife and children reintegrate their family unit after the long separation; and how a family copes with and prepares itself for a future without the father and husband. Essentially the volume encompasses three major periods: the waiting period; the repatriation period; the readjustment and reintegration period.
