Acknowledgements

The writing of this book owes much to the advise and support of numerous friends and colleagues. I especially want to thank Al Garthwaite, Margaret Jackson, Sheila Jeffreys, Sandra McNeill, Pat Mahony, Jackie Plaster, Sheila Rowe and Jessica Wood for the many exciting and inspiring debates which we had in the Patriarchy Study Group in the early 1980s, during the initial stages of my research. I am grateful to David Coates, the supervisor for my PhD, and Jalna Hanmer for their insistence that I should develop my PhD thesis into a book. Al Garthwaite and Penny Florence have helped me to present my ideas more clearly, and their knowledge and understanding of contemporary feminist debates and ideas have been invaluable. I have also been lucky to have had the tireless support of Jane Howarth and Jill da Silva, who have typed and re-typed the manuscript; and of Helen Thompson and Stuart MacWilliam, who have helped to track down many elusive references. My Department at the University of Exeter kindly provided a small grant for the final stages of the work. My colleagues over the years have been very supportive, and I am particularly grateful to Judy Worsnop, Anne Goldthorpe and Lorraine Radford who have all been greatly inconvenienced by the writing of this book. And for Lynne Bell, who has had to endure this project more than anyone, much love.
