""Sports in Higher Education: Issues and Controversies" provides students with a comprehensive foundation in the study of college sports. While college sports scandals have dominated the news recently, these scandals are offset by fan interest, increasing revenue streams, extensive television coverage, and alumni interest and support. This text informs readers about college sports as a critical aspect of the university education system, with material written by experts in their respective areas in Sport Management and the Sociology of Sport.The nine chapters of the book address issues such as the history and governance of college sports; the student athlete experience; gender; deviance; race and ethnicity; and coaching, administration, and reform. Each of the author-contributors is a member of the North American Society for the Sociology of Sport, and they write with passion and eloquence on topics such as "Crime, Deviance, and Violence in Intercollegiate Athletics" and "College Sport Reform: Deja Vu All over Again & Again." The goal of the material is not only to inform and educate, but to stimulate dialogue about college sports, and move understanding of this topic beyond box scores and championships, to encompass ethics, philosophy, sociology, and the education of the student-athlete as a whole person."Sports in Higher Education: Issues and Controversies" is the first comprehensive textbook of its kind, and is ideal for classes on American college sports at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.Adopting professors will receive a sample course syllabus, PowerPoint lectures notes, and sample test questions.Gary Sailes, Ph.D. is an award-winning Associate Professor in the Department of Kinesiology and an Adjunct Professor in the Department of African American and African Diaspora Studies at Indiana University.
