An introduction is presented to reports within the issue on the topic of fatherhood in Asian countries, including an article about Indian fathers by Sriram and Sandhu, a report on Muslim fatherhood in Malaysia by Juhari, Yaacob, and Abu Talib, and a discussion of Japanese fathers by Ishii-Kuntz. It is the aim of this special issue to advance our understanding and stimulate future research on whether and how Asian men's fathering behavior and ideology have changed, how they differ from those in Western societies, and what consequences such changes have brought on the well-being of their children.
