Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“ A long overdue and timely addition to this ASHE Reader Series! Satterfield, Hughes, Kearney and Martinez focus

on the study of sports and athletics in higher education. Anyone involved in the development of students who are

athletes and how they may fair on college campuses will be impressed and delighted with their treatment of a diverse

range of topics. They have created an important book for administrators, scholars, and students that will be widely

read by a multidisciplinary audience for a long time to come.”

Gary R. Roberts, Dean & Gerald L. Bepko Professor of Law, Indiana University School of Law–Indianapolis

“ The amount of work devoted to the creation of new knowledge on the intercollegiate athletics industry over the past

few decades has been extraordinary. Through this Reader, Satterfield, Hughes, Kearney, and Martinez have done

an excellent job selecting and organizing many of the most important contributions that have emerged from this

increasing knowledge base. I believe that the text should be a mandatory read for students and scholars in intercollegiate

athletics management and issues courses. Further, individuals looking to get a strong grounding of the challenges facing

college sports, and what interventions can be used to systematically improve the industry, should also consider the

text a must read.”

Dr. Michael Sagas, Chair and Professor of Sport Management in the College of Health and Human Performance,

University of Florida

“ Satterfield, Hughes, Kearney, and Martinez have thoughtfully crafted a must-have book for persons serious about

studying and understanding the role of athletics in higher education. In doing so, the editors have assembled a

collection of some of the most formative pieces on the topic. This Reader is sure to stimulate both critical reflection

and engaging dialogue concerning athletics’ role in higher education.”

Dr. George B. Cunningham, Professor, Associate Head, Division of Sports Management, Texas A&M University
