"When people talk about 'hooking up,' they're referring to a subculture with a complex set of rules and expectations. Not surprisingly, most of what they know about student 'hookup' culture comes from alarmist news reports of 'risky sex' and movies like American Pie 3, not serious scholarship. In her new book, Hooking Up: Sex, Dating, and Relationships on Campus (New York University Press, 2008), Bogle wields the tools of the sociologist, employing in-depth interviews with students and graduates from two unnamed universities — one a large East Coast public university, the other a smaller Roman Catholic institution in the Northeast — and placing the culture of hooking up in a historical context."
