About the Author

Steven P. Schacht, (1960-2003), served as professor in the Department of Sociology at Plattsburgh State University of New York. The bulk of his research over the past 10 years was ethnographic in approach, exploring issues of gender identity and gender construction. He also served as co-editor of Feminism and Men: Reconstructing Gender Relations with Doris Ewing, and Forging Radical Alliances Across Difference: Coalition Politics for a New Millennium with Jill Bystydzienski. Steve openly and honestly battled colon cancer for five years, dying in 2003 with the same passion and equanimity with which he lived. Doris W. Ewing is a professor emeritus of sociology at Southwest Missouri State University. Her primary areas of research and teaching are race, class, gender and disability. She has been active in community organizing and has previously co-authored a book and several articles on men and feminism with Steven P. Schacht.
