Format: Paperback
This book provides a very insightful view of sport. The book does not male bash as another reviewer suggested. Instead it provides a glimpse into various areas of sport and the problems that exist. It provides a full range of views and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I highly recommend this book!

The volume has a wide range of selections and some excellent reads. However, a few articles are a little dated.

Format: Paperback
My students use this text as an introduction to the scholarly world of sports. This is not a collection of empirical studies, but nor is it merely an anecdotal bashing of sport as an institution.
A more international scope would strengthen the book, but what is here is thoughtfully organized and well presented.
