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

Instructors will find the text equally useful in sport management and sport sociology courses focusing on racism and diversity.
