Fraternity gang rape : sex, brotherhood, and privilege on campus by Peggy Reeves Sanday( Book )

19 editions published between 1990 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
Female power and male dominance : on the origins of sexual inequality by Peggy Reeves Sanday( Book )

34 editions published between 1981 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, Professor Peggy Sanday provides a ground-breaking examination of power and dominance in male-female relationships. How does the culturally approved interaction between the sexes originate? Why are women viewed as a necessary part of political, economic, and religious affairs in some societies but not in others? Why do some societies clothe sacred symbols of creative power in the guise of one sex and not of the other? Professor Sanday offers solutions to these cultural puzzles by using cross-cultural research on over 150 tribal societies. She systematically establishes the full range of variation in male and female power roles and then suggests a theoretical framework for explaining this variation. Rejecting the argument of universal female subordination, Professor Sanday argues that male dominance is not inherent in human relations but is a solution to various kinds of cultural strain. Those who are thought to embody, be in touch with, or control the creative forces of nature are perceived as powerful. In isolating the behavioural and symbolic mechanisms which institute male dominance, professor Sanday shows that a people's secular power roles are partly derived from ancient concepts of power, as exemplified by their origin myths. Power and dominance are further determined by a people's adaptation to their environment, social conflict, and emotional stress. This is illustrated through case studies of the effects of European colonialism, migration, and food stress, and supported by numerous statistical associations between sexual inequity and various cultural stresses. -- Back cover
A woman scorned : acquaintance rape on trial by Peggy Reeves Sanday( Book )

12 editions published between 1996 and 2011 in English and held by 1,117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beginning with a harrowing account of the St. John's rape case, Sanday reaches back through British and American landmark rape cases to explain how, with the exception of earliest Colonial times, rape has been a crime notable for placing the woman on trial. Whether she is charged as a false accuser, gold digger, loose or scorned woman, stereotypes prevail. American jurisprudence and the public at large remain divided on acquaintance rape. And now, as the Violence Against Women Actthe most important legislation for women in twenty years - has been passed, a new breed of antifeminists has stepped up to the plate to subordinate women's bid for sexual autonomy and freedom. A groundbreaking work of scholarship that coherently challenges the anti-rape backlash and its rhetoric, A Woman Scorned brings a broader perspective to our understanding of acquaintance rape and envisions, finally, a new paradigm for female sexual equality
Divine hunger : cannibalism as a cultural system by Peggy Reeves Sanday( Book )

22 editions published between 1986 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 844 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The practice of cannibalism is in certain cultures rejected as evil, while in others it plays a central part in the ritual order. Anthropologists have offered various explanations for the existence of cannibalism, none of which, Peggy Sanday claims, is adequate. In this book she presents a new approach to understanding the phenomenon. Through a detailed examination of ritual cannibalism in selected tribal societies, and a comparison of those cases with others in which the practice is absent, she shows that cannibalism is closely linked to people's orientation to the world, and that it serves as a concrete device for distinguishing the "cultural self" from the "natural other."

Women at the center : life in a modern matriarchy by Peggy Reeves Sanday( Book )

9 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Contrary to the declarations of some anthropologists, matriarchies do exist. Peggy Reeves Sanday first went to West Sumatra in 1981, intrigued by reports that the matrilineal Minangkabau - one of the largest ethnic groups in Indonesia - label their society a matriarchy. Numbering some four million in West Sumatra, the Minangkabau are known in Indonesia for their literary flair, devotion to Islam, and egalitarian, democratic relationships between men and women." "In Women at the Center Sanday uses her repeated visits to West Sumatra in the closing decades of the twentieth century as the basis for a new definition of matriarchy. From the vantage point of daily life in villages, especially one where she developed close personal ties, Sanday's narrative centers on how the Minangkabau conceive of their world and think humans should behave, along with the practices and rituals they claim uphold their matriarchate."--Jacket
Aboriginal paintings of the Wolfe Creek Crater : track of the rainbow serpent by Peggy Reeves Sanday( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Told in Aboriginal art and narrative, the Dreamtime story of the creation and meaning of the Wolfe Creek Meteorite Crater in Australia's Western Desert appears here for the first time. Deftly and sensitively Sanday introduces the meaning of the cosmology of the homeland of the Walmajarri and Djaru Aboriginal people. She provides a compelling story of discovery, both that of her geologist father in 1947 and her own decades later. In a vibrant example of public-interest anthropology, an ethnography that evolves from dialogue and collaboration and honors the Aboriginal artists with whom she worked, Sanday enlightens, elucidates, and communicates the aesthetic sensibility of a people on their own terms. Through powerful Aboriginal art, readers become part of an unforgettable cultural experience

A diffusion model for the study of the cultural determinants of differential intelligence : final report by Peggy Reeves Sanday( Book )

2 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In empirically examining and developing a cultural diffusion model for the explanation of racial differences in mental ability scores, the major hypothesis of the model is that racial differences in mean iq scores are a function, among other factors, of the degree and nature of contact a group has with the mainstream culture. The data were drawn from the cumulative school records of all the ninth graders who were in the Pittsburgh Public School System in the 1970-71 school year. The major part of the analysis involves the examination of the pattern of change in the iq scores of the students who entered the system in the kindergarten and remained enrolled until the ninth grade. It was found that school and community segregation is related to an overall decrease in mean iq scores between grades k-8 for both blacks and whites. The iq of students in lower social class school environments decreases over time while that of students in upper social class environments increases. Two major policy recommendations are suggested by these results and the overall approach. The first concerns the potential value of the use of information contained in school records for formulating and monitoring educational policy related to equality of educational opportunity. The second policy recommendation discusses the importance of school social class integration in the early grades. (Author/RJ)

Simultaneous equations models of the educational process by Anthony E Boardman( Book )

4 editions published between 1973 and 1976 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper develops and estimates a model of the educational process. Most researchers have relied on a single equation, educational production function, which is an unrealistic formulation. A pupil's achievement, motivation, expectations, self-concept, and his perceived parents' and teachers' expectations are determined jointly, not independently. For this reason, this research models the educational process by a set of simultaneous equasions. Utilizing a sample of over 16,000 twelfth grade pupils from the Equality of Educational Opportunity Survey combined with information on their teachers and principals, two stage least squares are used to estimate the parameters of a linear model. The sign and significance of the regression coefficients provide important guidelines for the manipulation of policy variables such as the teacher-pupil ratio, school facilities, and racial composition.
