Abstract

In Some Men Michael Messner, Max Greenberg, and Tal Peretz provide a sympathetic account of men’s work on men’s violence against women in the United States since the 1970s. The book’s most interesting contribution is as a collective historical account of men’s antiviolence work. The book is based on interviews with 52 men who have worked in the field and a dozen of their female coworkers and mentors. It is focused on the United States, but there are a couple of Canadians in the mix. Some Men divides interviewees into generational groups based on shifting entry points into antiviolence activism: from social movements to university education and public health to intersectional community work.
