- Author BiographyAntony J. Puddephatt is an Assistant Professor of Sociology at Lakehead University in Canada. He is interested in sociological theory, science and technology, and ethnographic research. He conducted a field study of amateur chess, and has written on G.H. Mead's neglected sociology of science. William Shaffir is Professor of Sociology at McMaster University in Hamilton, Canada. He received his Ph.D. degree from McGill University. He is the author and co-author of books and journal articles in the areas of Hassidic Jewry, medical student socialization and professionalization, field research methods, ethnic violence, the social psychology of messianic revivalism, and religious affiliation and disaffiliation among newly-observant and formerly haredi (ultra-Orthodox) Jews. A recently completed study examined defeated politicians and how they cope with and rationalize defeat at the polls. Along with a colleague, he has conducted field research on a police service to examine the dynamics of racial profiling. His current research continues to focus on the challenges facing Hassidic Jewry as it confronts modernity. Steven W. Kleinknecht is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology at Brescia University College in London, Ontario, Canada.
