About this title

Synopsis:

College athletes are at the very center of emerging campus debates over their legal, financial, and academic role. Amid ongoing litigation and pressure from internal and external stakeholders, many policy makers and university leaders are scrambling to determine the nature of this role. This timely and comprehensive volume identifies and discusses bylaws and legal decisions that have impacted the college athlete’s ability to pursue higher education. It also explains and critiques the formal policies of the National Collegiate Athletic Association and member institutions while examining critical issues relevant to the growing fields of sport management, athletic administration, and sports law.

Aimed at anyone seeking to enhance their understanding of the intercollegiate athletics landscape, College Athletes’ Rights and Well-Being is divided into four sections. The first lays out the historical foundations that have shaped the intercollegiate athletic experience. Subsequent sections describe the principles, structures, and conditions that influence how athletes experience campus life, as well as the increasingly commercialized business enterprise of college sports.

Told from the perspective of athletes and written by leading scholars and researchers, the book’s sixteen chapters are enhanced with useful lists of key terms and conversation-provoking discussion questions. Touching on everything from concussion protocols and collective bargaining to amateurism, Title IX’s gender-separate allowance, and conference realignment, this important book is designed for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students, scholars, educators, practitioners, policy makers, athletic administrators, and advocates of college athletes.

Review:

"Examining the major policy issues that are virtually ripping big-time college sports apart, this book addresses incredibly challenging topics in a way that will stimulate debate."

(Allen Sack, coauthor of College Athletes for Hire: The Evolution and Legacy of the NCAA's Amateur Myth)

"With ongoing legal action and mounting social activism challenging the current NCAA model of college sport in the US, the release of this volume could hardly be more timely. Comeaux brings together contributions from leading scholars and professionals to examine college sports policy and practice from historical, legal, financial, labor, and academic perspectives... an excellent resource for auxiliary reading in any course that studies the sociological or cultural impacts of college sport in the US."

(R. D. Sheptak Jr., Baldwin Wallace University Choice)
