    I found this to be a helpful read in providing some background and context for the issue of hazing and rituals of binge drinking in College student organizations The book provides examinations of particular cases as well as a birds eye view of the landscape The one downside is that the book is about fifteen years old which is, admittedly, not the books fault An updated edition would be worthwhile at this point, I think The unfortunate thing is that, from where I sit, not much seems to have c I found this to be a helpful read in providing some background and context for the issue of hazing and rituals of binge drinking in College student organizations The book provides examinations of particular cases as well as a birds eye view of the landscape The one downside is that the book is about fifteen years old which is, admittedly, not the books fault An updated edition would be worthwhile at this point, I think The unfortunate thing is that, from where I sit, not much seems to have changed since the book was published although I am not as involved in this area of higher education as others and may just be unaware of the steps that have been taken All in all, a good resource for anyone working with Greek or other social student organizations on College campuses

    Meh Nuwer seems to think of himself as a modern Upton Sinclair, and indeed presents the assertion that he had hoped that his literary efforts, like Sinclair s, would effect change in the world This early egoism 2nd paragraph of the book predisposed me to dislike him and his writing style.Good presentation of hazing, for what it is worth.
