Intercollegiate athletics continue to bedevil American higher education. At once tied closely with their institutions, athletic programs often operate outside the traditional university governance structure while contributing significantly to a school’s culture, identity, and financial outlook. Introduction to Intercollegiate Athletics, edited by Eddie Comeaux, explores the complexities of intercollegiate athletics while explaining the organizational structures, key players, terms, and important issues most relevant to the growing but often misunderstood fields of recreational studies, sports management, and athletic administration.

The book is divided into eight sections, the first three of which describe the foundations, overarching structures, and conditions that shape athletics and higher education. Three others explore the ways college athletes experience life on campus, and the final two delve into the current and future policy contexts of intercollegiate athletics.

Written by a diverse group of expert scholars, the book’s twenty-eight chapters are enhanced with useful glossaries, reflections from athletics stakeholders, relevant case studies, and conversation-provoking discussion questions. Aimed at upper-level undergraduate and graduate students, scholars, teachers, practitioners, athletic administrators, and advocates of intercollegiate athletics, Introduction to Intercollegiate Athletics provides readers with up-to-date and comprehensive knowledge about the changes to―and challenges faced by―university athletics programs.

About the Author:

Eddie Comeaux is an assistant professor of higher education at the University of California–Riverside. The cofounder of the American Educational Research Association’s Research Focus on Education and Sport Special Interest Group, he played Division I baseball at the University of California–Berkeley, then spent four years playing baseball with the Texas Rangers prior to earning his Ph.D.

Review:

"Simply the best compilation of the thinking and knowledge from the most experienced minds in intercollegiate athletics. The issues of college sports are complex and constantly evolving and in many cases not very pretty. This is a collection of top-notch work that will get everyone up-to-date!"

(Donna A. Lopiano, Sports Management Resources)

"Eddie Comeaux’s Introduction to Intercollegiate Athletics is must reading for anyone interested in the complex world of college sport where so much has changed and is changing. Comeaux has brought together a talented group of knowledgeable writers. His book will help leaders understand the new course they need to follow, especially in serving the education of student-athletes."

(Richard Lapchick, The Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport, University of Central Florida)

"Comeaux has provided us with a long needed text that focuses on the entirety of intercollegiate athletics. His work brings together the voices and the broad substance needed to understand this complex sector in this most exhilarating moment in collegiate athletics."

(Ken Shropshire, University of Pennsylvania, Wharton Business School)

"At a time of turmoil and change in college athletics at the university, conference, and NCAA levels, Introduction to Intercollegiate Athletics is valuable and vital for students of sports and society. This is a welcome teaching tool for those who seek exposure to the relationship among athletes, coaches, and universities, in subjects as wide ranging as the collective bargaining process and issues relating to race and gender. I recommend this important book for course adoption."

(William B. Gould, IV, Stanford Law School and author of Bargaining with Baseball)
