Methodology: This book describes why teens behave the way they do, not how. There were two sources of primary American data: the first included 304 descriptions of high schools and their status structures written by 300 college students, average paper was about 7,150 words. The second source consisted of observations in a single high school (fall of 1997 until May 1999). The observations were conducted during the school lunch period, at public events and the junior/senior proms.
