Overview

This anthology of annotated writings from professional journals and other books explores the inequalities that characterize American professional and amateur sports; trace the struggles for equality and report their many achievements; and identify too many lingering examples of apparent insensitivity, unconcern, or intentional disregard for the absence of diversity and for the failure of inclusion. The writins also examine the debate over the causes and survey the proposed remedies, which range from modest reforms to major structural overhauls. Among the topics are race, gender, sexual orientation, sexual violence, and disability. US anti-discrimination laws are appended. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
