Overview

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. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
