Playing With the Boys

Why Separate is Not Equal in Sports

Eileen McDonagh and Laura Pappano

  • § Unique and provocative topic: there is no other book on the market that challenges the current sex-segregated policies in sports, and the argument put forward by McDonagh and Pappano will definitely inspire debate
  • § Engaging, fluid narrative: Pappano's journalistic experience is evident throughout the book; it contains gracefully written, engaging accounts of athletic girls and women who have challenged gender barriers in high school football, college basketball, and track and field.
