Women and Men is an interdisciplinary collection of essays on gender by thirty eminent Canadian scholars, artists, and activists. This book will make an excellent text in a variety of disciplines and fields, including Women?s Studies, Sociology, Education, Political Science, Psychology, Philosophy, and Religious Studies. Edited by Greta Hofmann Nemiroff, a pioneer in Canadian Women?s Studies, WOMEN AND MEN is destined to become a classic in gender studies.
?At last a Canadian text that includes in its contents articles written by men in the ongoing dialogue about gender-based issues. For those of us teaching Women?s Studies this book is long overdue and will be useful in both the Social Sciences and the Humanities. Greta Hofrnann Nemiroff?s expertise as an educator is obvious throughout the book: her selection is creative and judicious, her introduction is witty, informative ? and honest?
