Pulitzer-prize winning journalist Taylor Branch has a new eBook out about college athletes. The eBook, entitled, The Cartel: Inside the Rise and Imminent Fall of the NCAA, chronicles college sports scandals and the NCAA.
Here is more from the eBook: “College athletes are not slaves. Yet to survey the scene—corporations and universities enriching themselves on the backs of uncompensated young men, whose status as ‘student-athletes’ deprives them of the right to due process guaranteed by the Constitution—is to catch the unmistakable whiff of the plantation.”
A portion of piece was first published in the October 2011 issue of The Atlantic. Byliner Originals released the complete eBook title, which is available in eBookstores for $3.99.
