In a substantial new Introduction and Afterword, Sanday updates the incidences of fraternity gang rape on college campuses today and the most recent statistics on acquaintance rape. She explores the ways in which Greek life continues to promote the exploitation and sexual degradation of women. Looking at what the future might bring, she concludes with an examination of emerging campus and legal definitions of consent encouraged by the new sexual revolution.

Praise for the First Edition
“A powerful and important book.”
“Full of insights . . . an important contribution . . . written in accessible prose and ideal for course use.”
-Women's Review of Books
“Powerfully moving and analytically provocative. . . . If the college or university at which AJS readers teach has a fraternity or sorority system, this book will be useful in understanding the way those organizations not only construct the gender relations between women and men on campus but also provide a map of male domination that members can take with them for the rest of their lives.”
-Michael S. Kimmel,American Journal of Sociology
“Sanday draws a chilling picture of fraternity society, its debasement of women and the way it creates a looking-glass world in which gang rape can be considered normal behavior and the pressure of group-think it powerful.”
