Psychoanalyst and research Robert Garfield has focused on men and the friendships they form for many years. In his new book, "Breaking the Male Code", Mr. Garfield explores the rules that keep men spinning in a culture that doesn't always know what it wants them to be. The author talks with Don Merrill about how TV heroes are no role model, why the men's movement of the 90s hurt men as much as it helped them and how fatherhood is one of the purest ways men can bond.

Tom Becker shares Jack Smith's article from Counterpunch.

Now the author contends the lone remaining class term--the middle class--is also on its way out.
