This popular, widely acclaimed analysis of sport in America is now completely updated, with expanded treatment of contemporary issues. Power and Ideology in American Sport, Second Edition addresses a wide range of topics, including -how sport is embedded in the social, political, and economic structures of American society; -how the sporting experience is shaped by powerful individuals as well as ordinary people; and as such -how sport both unifies and segregates individuals, social classes, racial and ethnic groups, and competing political loyalties. Sage blends sociology, history, and cultural criticism into an innovative synthesis that will change the way readers think about sports. Clear, accessible, and passionately argued, Power and Ideology in American Sport, Second Edition, challenges the status quo of big-time sport and points the way toward a more humane, equitable sporting culture.
