"College Sports and Institutional Values in Competition" is intended for students and faculty in both sports management and higher education administration programs and its chapters cover the historical contexts and background of campus athletics, issues and institutional tensions over market pressures, the spectacle of college athletics and how this spectacle influences athlete experiences, as well as the ways in which leaders are navigating these issues.
