Cheated: the UNC Scandal, the Education of Athletes, and the Future of Big-Time College Sports
Call Number: GV691 .U57 S65 2015
In 2010 allegations of an utterly corrupt academic system for student-athletes emerged from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill campus, home of the legendary Tar Heels. As the alma mater of Michael Jordan, Larry Brown, Marion Jones, Lawrence Taylor, Rashad McCants, and many others; winner of forty national championships in six different sports; and a partner in one of the best rivalries in sports, UNC–Chapel Hill is a world-famous colossus of college athletics. In the wake of the Wainstein report, however, the fallout from this scandal—and the continuing spotlight on the failings of college athletics—has made the school ground zero in the debate about how the $16 billion college sports industry operates.
Faces of Power
Call Number: E840 .B768 2015
An authoritative account of U.S. foreign policy from the end of the Second World War to the present challenges common assumptions about American presidents and their struggle with power and purpose.
Keep on Pushing: Black Power Music from Blues to Hip Hop
Call Number: ML3556 .S94 2011
The marriage of music and social change didn't originate with the movements for civil rights and Black Power in the 1950s and 1960s, but never before and never again was the relationship between the two so dynamic.
Killing Machine: the American Presidency in the Age of Drone Warfare
Call Number: JK558 .G37 2013
With Obama's election to the presidency in 2008, many believed the United States had entered a new era: Obama came into office with high expectations that he would end the war in Iraq and initiate a new foreign policy that would reestablish American values and the U.S.; leadership role in the world. With unparalleled historical perspective, Gardner's book is the new touchstone for understanding not only the Obama administration but the American presidency itself.
Playing for Keeps
Call Number: GV884.J67 H35 1999
