Summary

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 Fagsheds 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.
