Michael Kimmel, Distinguished Professor of Sociology at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, is among the leading researchers and writers on men and masculinity. An author or editor of more than twenty volumes, his books include Changing Men: New Directions in Research on Men and Masculinity, The Politics of Manhood, The Gender of Desire, and Manhood in America.
His most recent book, Guyland, is a best-selling investigation of young people’s lives today, based on interviews with more than 400 young men, ages 16-26.
Feminist icon Gloria Steinem says, “Kimmel’s Guyland could save the humanity of many young men – and the sanity of their friends and parents.”
