Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Book News Annotation:

Rather than focusing on the ongoing scandals involving misconduct by college athletes, French (ethics, Arizona State U.) considers the ethical questions central to the inclusion of intercollegiate athletics in American universities. He analyzes the myths about amateurism, sports as a path to good moral character, and sports programs as a source of university income. As he dismantles these myths, French imagines more clear- sighted justifications for intercollegiate sports.
