Summary

Tracing the evolution of college athletes into university employees, this book describes how the NCAA fashioned an amateur myth to obscure this de facto employer-employee relationship. Sack and Staurowsky show how the amateur myth exploits athletes, undermines education, and confuses the issue of gender equity. They also propose practical reforms.
