About this item

Bestselling author William D. Cohan, whose reporting and writing have been hailed as "gripping" (the New York Times), "authoritative" (the Washington Post), and "seductively engrossing" (Chicago Tribune), presents a stunning new account of the Duke lacrosse team scandal that reveals the pressures faced by America's elite colleges and universities and pulls back the curtain, in a riveting narrative, on the larger issues of sexual misconduct, underage drinking, and bad-boy behavior - all too prevalent on campuses across the country. Despite being front-page news nationwide, the true story of the 2006 Duke lacrosse team rape case has never been told in its entirety and is more complex than all the reportage to date would indicate.
