Sociology of North American Sport

Ninth Edition

George H. Sage and D. Stanley Eitzen

In Sociology of North American Sport, authors Sage and Eitzen--both former athletes and coaches--offer a compact yet comprehensive and integrated perspective on sport in North American society. Bringing a unique viewpoint to the subject, the authors 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.
