Summary

Examine American sports in a social-cultural historical context

 

American Sports offers a reflective, analytical history of American sports from the colonial era to the present. Readers will focus on the diverse relationships between sports and class, gender, race, ethnicity, religion and region, and understand how these interactions can bind diverse groups together. By considering the economic, social and cultural factors that have surrounded competitive sports, readers will understand how sports have reinforced or challenged the values and behaviors of society.

 

A comprehensive revision to the 7th edition preserves the detailed coverage of sports history while incorporating recent scholarship and expanded treatment of the challenges and dilemmas of twenty-first century sports. Greater attention is given to the sporting activities of women, African Americans, Latinos and Native Americans.
