Good Sports? Historical Perspective on the Political Economy of Intercollegiate Athletics in the Era of Title IX, 1972-1997.
Thelin, John R.
Journal of Higher Education, v71 n4 p391-410 Jul-Aug 2000
Review of historical data does not support claims of colleges and universities that compliance with Title IX (1972) has led to financial strains in operation of intercollegiate athletic programs or that self-regulation makes federal guidelines an unreasonable and unnecessary intrusion into institutional autonomy. Focuses on the Brown vs. Cohen case (1997) requiring institutions to adhere to strict gender equity standards. (DB)
