Praise For The Sons of Westwood: John Wooden, UCLA, and the Dynasty That Changed College Basketball (Sport and Society)…
"John Matthew Smith may be the first author to fully and fairly assess the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) basketball program during its miraculous run of ten championships from 1964 to 1975. . . . revealing and insightful."--Journal of Sport History
"A thoroughly engrossing account…The Sons of Westwood makes a complex story during a turbulent time in U.S. history a little easier to understand. It is a well-researched account that would be attractive to scholars and a popular audience… John Matthew Smith connects the events occurring in collegiate athletics to events in the larger American society."--The Journal of African American History
