The Sociology of Sports: An Introduction (2009)
Ranging widely in its scope, this sociological exploration provides a critical look at the institution of sport but emphasizes the positive aspects by analyzing how sports affect and are affected by the mores, values, and general culture of a society. The Sociology of Sport provides a thorough study of the relationships between sports and such societal forces as violence, gender, race, religion, mass media, economics and others, commenting as well on the role of sports in high school and college life. American sports receive the fullest treatment, but the authors do not neglect the international aspects of sport.
