High school and the difficult terrain of sexuality and gender identity are brilliantly explored in this smart, incisive ethnography. Based on eighteen months of fieldwork in a racially diverse working-class high school, "Dude, You're a Fag" sheds new light on masculinity both as a field of meaning and as a set of social practices. C. J. Pascoe's unorthodox approach analyzes masculinity as not only a gendered process but also a sexual one. She demonstrates how the 'specter of the fag' becomes a disciplinary mechanism for regulating heterosexual as well as homosexual boys and how the 'fag discourse' is as much tied to gender as it is to sexuality.

    Boken beskriver hur och varför epitetet bög (fag) används i killars jargonger och gruppdynamiker i skolan. En mycket informationsrik bok om man är intresserad av varför killar kallar varandra för bög i sina skämtjargonger.

"This insightful peek into the realities of high school should be read by researchers, administrators, teachers, and parents. . . . Pascoe's analysis is sophisticated, mapping the intricacies involved in the relationships between sexuality, gender, race, and class. Yet, her work is clean-cut and difficult to argue against." * Men & Masculinities * "An incisive assessment." * Seattle Gay News * "Introspective, fascinating, consistently interesting." * Bay Area Reporter * "Current, typically salient, personally informative, [and] lively in style. . . . The exemplary fieldwork vignettes and case studies are abundant, rich, vivid, and experientially resonant. At the same time, [Pascoe] has thoroughly theorized her narrative, providing a fine conceptual vocabulary, a probing critical framework, and a set of intelligent practical recommendations." * General Anthropology Bulletin * "Academic, but accessible." * Bottom Line * "Pascoe is able to witness the quotidian rituals of heterosexual masculinity, its precariousness, its fragility and ultimately, its dangerous lashing out at all that can undermine it." * Social Forces * "Pascoe gives a fly-on-the-wall experience of sexuality in high school." * Journal of Gender Studies * "Pascoe's work challenges research on gender, and specifically masculinity, to address sexuality, race, and other significant factors as aspects of the social construction of masculinities." * Gender & Society * "Not only is the information interesting and relevant to our society, but Pascoe's book is a great representation of ethnographic protocol." * Lambda Alpha Journal * "Usefully calls for a more sophisticated approach to issues surrounding teenage sexuality, masculinity and power than is generally enabled by uncritical applications of a generic notion of homophobia." * Culture, Health, & Sexuality * "The book nicely illustrates how masculinity comprises thoughts and ideas that are collectively defined and asserted, and how salient such issues are for high school students." * 126 Spaces for Difference: An Interdisciplinary Journal *
