Reviews

"An important historical analysis of college sport placed in the broader setting of American higher education. Thelin provides a helpful, even if dispiriting, perspective for not only thinking about current problems plaguing college sport but also for understanding why college sport has survived and why university leadership and the sports establishment have resisted major reform efforts."

"A wonderfully easy read."

"This book is an important addition to any canon of the field's literature."

"A welcome book on an important subject."
