Overview

Expanded and updated, with photos throughout, this third edition explains America's love of sport just as it reveals sport's darker side—the influence of big business, corruption, price gouging, political maneuvering, and media grandstanding. A new chapter explores the globalization of sport and the ramifications of this process for American sports culture. Eitzen portrays famous and lesser-known events from professional, college, and school sports, including depictions of well known coaches and players, to give us a deeper understanding of what sports means to us and how it affects our everyday world. Ideal for sparking classroom discussion, the first two editions were widely read and enjoyed by students of sociology of sport, American society, and other courses.
