Jan Kemp was an assistant professor of English and coordinator of the four quarter non-credit Developmental Studies program at the University of Georgia that prepared marginal students for success in the regular curriculum. Nine revenue-producing athletes failed to attain the mandatory grade of "C" in English during four quarters in 1981-1982. Those failures mandated their expulsion from UGA. Kemp was disappointed, of course, but not as disappointed as when she learned that those athletes had been "exited" from the program into the regular curriculum by her superiors - they were needed to ensure an opportunity to defeat Notre Dame in the upcoming Sugar Bowl. Kemp's aggressive protest led to her dismissal from UGA's faculty. The ensuing "Jan Kemp Affair" led to President Fred Davison's forced resignation. Take Down, written by plaintiff's attorney Hue Henry, covers the history of administrative abuses at the University of Georgia from 1972-1986 under the authority of Davison. In the midst of the continuing scandals related to college athletic programs and vexed debates about fair treatment and the long-term interests of student athletes, Jan Kemp and her story are as relevant today as they were decades ago. This is the story of a hero who fought on behalf of academic integrity, the ethical rights of instructors entrusted with the education of their students, and what society expects and deserves from our institutions of higher learning.

In Behind the Hedges, journalist Rich Whitt focused his investigative lens on recent events at the University of Georgia, and in so doing examined the bigger story of "a sea change in how America supports its institutions of higher education." Through interviews with many key figures in a struggle for power at UGA over the last decade, Rich examines the controversial tenure of Michael Adams as UGA president, and how this controversy led to the unprecedented split between the Board of Regents and the UGA Foundation, with implications for the landscape of higher education funding nationwide.

In this classic study, Sidney Fine portrays the dramatic events of the 1936–37 Flint Sit-down Strike against General Motors, which catapulted the UAW into prominence and touched off a wave of sit-down strikes across the United States. Basing his account on an impressive variety of manuscript sources, Fine analyzes the strategy and tactics of GM and the UAW, describes the life of the workers in the occupied plants, and examines the troubled governmental and public reaction to the alleged breakdown of law and order in the strikes. In addition, Fine provides vivid portraits of the major figures on both sides of the conflict: Governor Frank Murphy; Alfred Sloan, Jr.; William Knudsen; Robert Travis; Roy, Victor, and Walter Reuther; Homer Martin; and Wyndham Mortimer. The GM sit-down strike marks the close of one era of labor-management relations in the United States and the beginning of another. A half century after its initial publication, Fine’s work remains the definitive account of that momentous conflict. A new foreword by Kim Moody’s revisits Sit-Down in order to demonstrate its continued relevance to today’s unions, workers, and activists.

The Jerry Sandusky child molestation case stunned the nation. As subsequent revelations uncovered an athletic program operating free of oversight, university officials faced criminal charges while unprecedented NCAA sanctions hammered Penn State football and blackened the reputation of coach Joe Paterno. In Wounded Lions , acclaimed sport historian and longtime Penn State professor Ronald A. Smith draws from university archives to answer the How? and Why? at the heart of the scandal. The Sandusky case was far from the first example of illegal behavior related to the football program--or the university's attempts to suppress news of it. As Smith shows, decades of infighting among administrators, alumni, trustees, faculty, and coaches established policies intended to protect the university, and the football team considered synonymous with its name, at all costs. If the habits predated Paterno, they also became sanctified during his tenure. Smith names names to show how abuses of power warped the "Penn State Way" even with hires like women's basketball coach Rene Portland, who allegedly practiced sexual bias against players for decades. Smith also details a system that concealed Sandusky's horrific acts just as deftly as it whitewashed years of rules violations, coaching malfeasance, and player crime while Paterno set records and raised hundreds of millions of dollars for the university.
