Overview

This widely acclaimed and meticulously documented volume illustrates, in painstaking and painful detail, the nature of fraternity gang rape. Drawing on interviews with women students and fraternity members, Peggy Reeves Sanday reconstructs daily life in fraternities where male bonding is manifested in boasting about "getting laid," in drinking, and in degrading, often grotesque, initiation and hazing rituals.

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.
