Getting Wasted: Why College Students Drink Too Much and Party So Hard

NYU Press - Giving voice to college drinkers as they speak in graphic and revealing terms about the complexity of the drinking scene, Vander Ven argues that college students continue to drink heavily, embarrassing, even after experiencing repeated bad experiences, because of the social support that they give to one another and due to the creative ways in which they reframe and recast violent, and regretful drunken behaviors.

Most american college campuses are home to a vibrant drinking scene where students frequently get wasted, train-wrecked, hammered, destroyed, obliterated, and decimated. New york University Press. Provocatively, closed and seemingly secure, Getting Wasted shows that college itself, encourages these drinking patterns and is one more example of the dark side of campus life.

Getting Wasted: Why College Students Drink Too Much and Party So Hard - In getting wasted, thomas Vander Ven provides a unique answer to the perennial question of why college students drink. Drawing on over 400 student accounts, and one hundred hours of field research, 25 intensive interviews, Vander Ven sheds light on the extremely social nature of college drinking. Vander ven argues that college students rely on 'drunk support:' contrary to most accounts of alcohol abuse as being a solitary problem of one person drinking to excess, the college drinking scene is very much a social one where students support one another through nights of drinking games, rituals and rites of passage.

The terms that university students most commonly use to describe severe alcohol intoxication share a common theme: destruction, and even after repeated embarrassing, physically unpleasant, and even violent drinking episodes, students continue to go out drinking together.

The Hip Hop Wars: What We Talk About When We Talk About Hip Hop--and Why It Matters

Civitas Books - This both represents and feeds a problem in black American culture. Basic Civitas Books. As scholar and cultural critic tricia Rose argues, in fact, hip hop, has become one of the primary ways we talk about race in the United States. How hip hop shapes our conversations about race--and how race influences our consideration of hip hop Hip hop is a distinctive form of black art in America-from Tupac to the Pulitzer Prize-winning Kendrick Lamar, hip hop has long given voice to the African American experience.

. Or does it? in the hip-hop wars, rose explores the most crucial issues underlying the polarized claims on each side of the debate: Does hip hop cause violence, or merely reflect a violent ghetto culture? Is hip hop sexist, or are its detractors simply anti-sex? Does the portrayal of black culture in hip hop undermine black advancement?A potent exploration of a divisive and important subject, The Hip Hop Wars concludes with a call for the regalvanization of the progressive and creative heart of hip hop.

The Hip Hop Wars: What We Talk About When We Talk About Hip Hop--and Why It Matters - For years, thugs, pimps, the most commercially successful hip hop has become increasingly saturated with caricatures of black gangstas, and hos. But hip hop is in crisis. What rose calls for is not a sanitized vision of the form, anger, but one that more accurately reflects a much richer space of culture, sex, and yes, politics, than the current ubiquitous images in sound and video currently provide.
