"...the first mature work focused on the cultural politics of intercollegiate athletics. In one fell swoop it takes the study of college sport onto an elevated plain." - David L. Andrews, The University of Memphis "Crisp, accessible, and free of is hard to put down. The authors show how racist images and practices are embedded in the cultures of higher education, stitched into the cultures of specific campuses, and take on forms that interact with surrounding racial representations, racial groups, practices, and histories." - Norman K. Denzin, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign "An important contribution to understanding the dynamic of race as it plays out in intercollegiate athletics and higher education. Extremely interesting." - Ellen J. Staurowsky, coauthor of College Athletes for Hire: The Evolution and Legacy of the NCAA's Amateur Myth
