Inhaltsangabe: This substantially revised edition of Racism in College Athletics retains the rich history and context that made the first two editions so widely acclaimed. Yet this third edition not only expands on the hurdles and triumphs of African American student-athletes, but it also examines the injustices toward and successes of coaches, administrators, and international student-athletes.
Editors Dana Brooks and Ronald Althouse have assembled an elite collection of scholars in order to provide readers with the most authoritative text on the topic of racism in intercollegiate athletics. The 17 chapters of Racism in College Athletics, 3rd Edition are broken down into seven sections:
*Historical Analysis of Racism in College Sports *Recruitment, Retention, and NCAA Rules and Regulations *Gender and Race Intersections *The African American Student-Athlete and Popular Culture *Race, Gender, and Fan Support *Racism, Media Exposure, and Stereotyping *Diversity Beyond Black and White This book is equally ideal for sport management and sport sociology courses focusing on racism and diversity.
