An Anniversary Collection volume

"Enter the world of unscrupulous sports agents and watch as they bribe unsuspecting student athletes, mismanage their contracts, violate NCAA regulations, and leave scandal- and probation-ridden universities in their wake. Although he relates many such tales of greed and woe, Kenneth Shropshire is not only interested in bashing sports agents. His straightforward and evenhanded analysis also provides some sound solutions to the problems surrounding the recruitment of college athletes into professional sports."—Harvard Law Review
