Sociology of North American Sport

Eleventh Edition

George H. Sage, D. Stanley Eitzen, and Becky Beal

Now in its eleventh 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, D. Stanley Eitzen, and Becky Beal analyze and, in turn, demythologize sport. This method promotes an understanding of how a sociological perspective differs from commonsense perceptions about sport and society, helping students to understand sport in a new way.

New to this Edition:

  • A revised and expanded explanation of sociological theories and their relevance to sport
  • Updated content, statistics, and references
  • New tables and figures
  • An expanded focus on diversity
  • New and updated "Thinking About Sport" boxes
