Great historical and cultural analysis. I assign this book in my Gender in Higher Education course, and use it as a supplementary reading in my Masculinity in the United States course.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating and well-researched! Feb. 28 2009
By N. Schwartzman - Published on
"The Company He Keeps" is a fascinating book about an under-explored topic- the history of white college fraternities. The author, Nick Syrett, has a vivid writing style and presents his in-depth research in a compelling, entertaining voice. This is a must read for those interested in group behavior, gender relations through a specific historical framework and the embedded role of fraternities in American culture.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enlightening Treatment of a Little-Known History May 6 2009
By P. Kranz - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The author has done a superb job of dealing with the little-known history of American fraternities, especially the less-edifying aspects of that history. The book is exceedingly well-researched and well-written. Especially interesting is the author's description of the all-white Protestant fraternity and the nature of the masculinity it promoted.

1.0 out of 5 stars Eh?? April 12 2013
By GK - Published on
Poorly rationalized and biased towards what he wants to believe. Research is spread thin due to the depth and breadth of the material he attempted to cover and thus preconceived opinions become forced facts. Pass on this one.
