9780253214980: Wrongs of Passage: Fraternities, Sororities, Hazing, and Binge Drinking

A grim... exposé by hazing expert Nuwer of the continuing yet largely unacknowledged crisis of death and injury among fraternity and sorority pledges.... [F]or its sustained examination of these rarely questioned traditions, Nuwer’s work is invaluable." ―Kirkus Reviews

What forces young men and women to accept inhuman and degrading rituals in order to belong to a social club, sorority, or fraternity? Why do college administrators and Greek fraternities and sororities continue to allow practices that risk death or permanent psychological damage? Hank Nuwer confronts these questions in this hard-hitting, heartfelt look at the dark side of college fraternal life, newly updated for this paperback edition. Nuwer takes a broad look at the problem, examining its fundamental legal and historical roots and describing many instances of abuse and criminal behavior. A moving chronology lists the names of students who have died as a result of hazing activities in the U.S. from 1838 to 2001. The book concludes with Nuwer’s recommendations for reform.

About the Author:

Hank Nuwer is author of Broken Pledges: The Deadly Rite of Hazing, High School Hazing: When Rights Become Wrongs, The Legend of Jesse Owens, and To the Young Writer and has published short articles and longer essays on hazing for American Legion Magazine, The Chronicle of Higher Education, Harper's Magazine, Nuvo Newsweekly, and Human Behavior. He teaches reporting classes as an adjunct professor for the Indiana University School of Journalism, Indianapolis (IUPUI), and he has lectured on the topics of hazing and binge drinking at the University of Michigan, University of Oregon, University of Pennsylvania and Cornell University.

From Kirkus Reviews:

A grim, comprehensive (some might say turgid) expose, by hazing expert Nuwer (Broken Pledges: The Deadly Rite of Hazing, 1990, etc.), of the continuing yet largely unacknowledged crisis of death and injury among fraternity and sorority pledges. The book usefully provides a solid overview of the cherished Greek customs and demands that have encouraged widespread hazing, as well as a depressing litany of recent deaths at prestigious universities such as Auburn University, University of Texas, University of Maryland, MIT, and Rutgers. The majority of incidents involve coerced drinking, a phenomenon that evinces an astonishing callousness towards the dangers of alcohol abuse among upper-class brothers who are rarely held accountable. Nuwer also sheds light on such ugly practices as the extreme violence practiced by some African-American frats (often unauthorized chapters) on their pledges, and rituals of branding or extraordinary humiliation which some outwardly prim, elite sororities pursue. Nuwer demonstrates the institutional responses to these incidents to be usually inadequate, centered more on spin than safety, and foolishly deferential to the overwhelmingly middle-class or affluent student-perpetrators. (The appendix, a detailed chronology of incidents showing these deaths skyrocketing from 1975 onward, is truly shocking.) Nuwer is authoritative and insightful on this subject; he even provides fascinating encapsulations of hazings roots in the 19th century and previously, and of the relatively innocent stunts of pre-1960 fraternal life. Unfortunately, the writing veers from tightly professional to mawkish, with detours into softened academese, which will make his book hard going for the suburban readers whose privileged children are, in fact, his sad subjects. Nuwer also undermines his examination by equating every bout of verbal abuse or brick-holding marathon with the worst excesses of compulsive drinking, violence, and degradation. Still, this makes clear that a good number of easily led youngsters incur grave risks in the supposedly supportive, fun environment of collegiate Greek life, and for its sustained examination of these rarely questioned traditions, Nuwers work is invaluable. -- Copyright ©1999, Kirkus Associates, LP.
