Sociology of North American Sport

Tenth Edition

George H. Sage and D. Stanley Eitzen

Now in its tenth edition, Sociology of North American Sport offers a compact yet comprehensive and integrated perspective on sport in North American society. Bringing a unique viewpoint to the subject, George H. Sage and D. Stanley Eitzen analyze and, in turn, demythologize sport. This method promotes an understanding of how a sociological perspective differs from common-sense perceptions about sport and society, helping students to understand sport in a new way.

New to this Edition:

  • Pays greater attention to diversity--including ethnicity, race, gender, and sexual orientation--throughout the book
  • Reorganizes chapters to address gender and race earlier in the text
  • Offers an expanded section on sport and disability
  • Thoroughly updated throughout with many new photos, tables, and figures
