Ethics and College Sports is a careful analysis of the root problems in intercollegiate athletics in American universities. It examines the prevalent myths that are regularly used to justify the inclusion of intercollegiate athletics, and all of the abuses and scandals it has brought to university campuses, from a moral perspective.

This well-researched book delves into the ethics and status of big-time sports (football and basketball) within the academy. This volume offers substantial food for thought about the conduct of sports and will be valuable for collections supporting beginning work in the sociology of sports and sports management.
