The idea of the "anti-sexist man" is often treated with scorn by feminists and hesitantly by men. Based around interviews with eight men who have responded positively to feminist ideas,The Making of Anti-Sexist Menmakes an important contribution to an understanding of the life experiences of anti-sexist men and helps reduce the isolation that many men feel when they choose to go against society's dominant expectations. The Making of Anti-Sexist Menalso fills a major gap in the literature on masculinity, adding substantial empirical material to a field which, until now, has been largely dominated by theoretical discussion. The life stories contained in the book show how anti-sexist men differ from their chauvinist counterparts and at the same time deprecate the "wild man" tendency currently in vogue in some men's group circles. Harry Christian uses the interview data he has collected to help answer questions regarding the sort of life experiencesthat "make" pro-feminist men, and whether they can be trusted as allies for feminists.
