Staff Reviews


The sexual politics of college (and post-college) life are central to successful discussions of gender equality. In this must-read book Wade investigates what hookup culture looks like, the unequal impacts of it (oftentimes along racial and gender lines), and its relationship to an ever-changing lineage of American youths and how they initiate and experience sex and romance.

— Clara

Description


Offering invaluable insights for students, parents, and educators, Lisa Wade analyzes the mixed messages of hookup culture on today's college campuses within the history of sexuality, the evolution of higher education, and the unfinished feminist revolution. She draws on broad, original, insightful research to explore a challenging emotional landscape, full of opportunities for self-definition but also the risks of isolation, unequal pleasure, competition for status, and sexual violence.

Accessible and open-minded, compassionate and honest, American Hookup explains where we are and how we got here, asking, "Where do we go from here?"
