Anthony Giddens, a British sociologist, was educated at Hull, the London School of Economics, and Cambridge, and is a fellow of King's College, Cambridge. His interests have been varied, but they tend to focus on questions related to the macro-order. Much of his theoretical writing deals with stratification, class, and modernity. Although he has concentrated on dynamic issues of social structure, he has also examined how social psychological concerns are part of this broader order of human relations.

Deborah Carr's articles have appeared in Saltscapes, Progress, Nature Canada, Outdoor Canada, and Homemakers Magazine. As a child, she watched Mary Majka's television show, Have You Seen? Her first home as a married woman was on Caledonia Mountain, where she first encountered the formidable Mary Majika more than twenty years ago.

Mitchell Duneier teaches sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and at the University of California at Santa Barbara. His first book, Slim's Table, won the 1994 Distinguished Publication Award of the American Sociological Association.
