Editorial Reviews

Jay Coakley
After years of unexplained oversight, scholars now recognize the pervasiveness and significance of mediated sports. This collection pulls together research that will engage and open the eyes of anyone who has read a sports page, watched a Super Bowl, owned a fantasy team, or known someone who has. Read this book and you’ll learn more about yourself, your friends, and the world we inhabit.
Michael L. Butterworth
Sports Fans, Identity, and Socialization is a welcome addition to the growing scholarship in communication and sport. This edited volume features an impressive lineup of emerging and established scholars, drafted from a variety of disciplinary interests, including business, media studies, psychology, public relations, rhetoric, and sports management. What makes the book such a success is that it presents a broad range of methodological perspectives and addresses sports fanship across multiple sports, sites, and contexts. Sports Fans, Identity, and Socialization is required reading for anyone interested in the attitudes, behaviors, and motivations of contemporary sports fans.
