Summary

Using an issues-oriented approach to study the role of sport in society, this text encourages the discussion of current sports-related controversies and helps students develop critical thinking skills.

A new chapter covering sports and socialization examines the actual experience and consequences of sports involvement, giving students concrete examples of sociological research and how it can be applied. New material about the relationship between sports and cultural concepts of gender, race, class, and character logic helps students understand the dominant ideology of the culture. A revised chapter on sports and the economy helps students understand the commercialization of sports. New "What Do You Think" boxes explore current controversies and provide an opportunity for critical analysis and discussion.
