It was during this period-1955 to be exact-that sociologist Alfred M. Lee published his seminal work "Fraternities without Brotherhood: A Study of Prejudice on the American Campus". Lee's book was the first and last book to explore diversity within college fraternal groups. More than fifty years later, Craig L. Torbenson and Gregory S. Parks revisit this issue more broadly in their edited volume "Brothers and Sisters: Diversity in College Fraternities and Sororities". This volume draws from a variety of disciplines in an attempt to provide a holistic analysis of diversity within collegiate fraternal life. It also brings a wide range of scholarly approaches to the inquiry of diversity within college fraternities and sororities. It explores not only from whence these groups have come but where they are currently situated and what issues arise as they progress."@en
