Description - The Hazing Reader by Hank Nuwer

Despite numerous highly publicized incidents and widespread calls for reform, hazing continues to plague many of America's institutions. In this volume, noted hazing researcher Hank Nuwer presents 15 classic or never-before-published essays that can help all of us, parent and professional alike, better understand the culture of hazing. The collection, which includes contributions from such experts as Michael Gordon, Walter Kimbrough, Stephen Sweet, and Lionel Tiger, looks at hazing behavior in fraternal organizations (including sororities and traditionally black fraternities), high school, the military, and sports. There are also chapters on hazing and the law, hazing injuries, and hazing and gender. Lastly, the book lays out steps for transforming a culture of hazing and offers suggestions for further reading.
