Edward J. Lordan, PhD, is professor of communication studies at West Chester University, PA.Review:
"A thorough, provocative exploration of scandal in the world of sports and how the individuals involved and their organizations have sought to manage the crises and prevent future ones. Lordan also tackles the toughest question of all: In today's world, what still qualifies as a scandal? A delightful read, with meaningful historical context." (Bob Ford, Philadelphia Inquirer)
