Fraternity Gang Rape by Peggy Reeves Sanday

Book Description

This widely acclaimed and meticulously documented volume illustrates, in painstaking and disturbing detail, the nature of fraternity gang rape. Drawing on interviews with both victims and fraternity members, Peggy Reeves Sanday reconstructs daily life in the fraternity, highlighting the role played by pornography, male bonding, and 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, highlighting such recent cases as that of Duke University and others in the headlines. Sanday also explores the nature of hazing at sororities on campus and how Greek life in general contributes to a culture which promotes the exploitation and sexual degradation of women on campus. More broadly, Sanday examines the nature of campus life today and the possibility of creating a rape-free campus culture.

Divine Hunger by Peggy Reeves Sanday Divine Hunger, Paperback (July 1986)

Cannibalism is in certain cultures rejected as evil, while in others it plays a central part in the ritual order. This text argues that ritual cannibalism is connected to the constructs by which the origin and continuity of life are understood, linking the human with the material world.
