THE SILVERBACK NARRATIVES
This section shows how little impact all the work of all the feminist sociologists has had. It is to be contrasted with the following section, in which work by some very different men, who have treated feminist sociology with respect, is explored. The silverback narrative section begins with my personal response to the publication of an interview conducted by a Belgian sociologist, with Erving Goffman. My responses to that interview produced the motivation for the analysis.
