Fair and Foul : Beyond the Myths and Paradoxes of Sport, Hardback Book

Fair and Foul : Beyond the Myths and Paradoxes of Sport Hardback

Description

Fair and Foul explores our love of sport, just as it reveals sport's darker side-the influence of big business, corruption, price gouging, political maneuvering, gender bias, media grandstanding, and more.

The sixth edition features a new chapter on mass media and sport, a revised introduction that lays out the two themes of the book with fresh examples, and a significantly revised chapter on college sport that asks whether or not big-time college sports are compatible with higher education.

This edition also features new material throughout, such as the rising costs and increasing injuries in youth sports, fantasy sports, homophobia in sport, "one and done," and more. Fair and Foul draws on examples ranging from youth to pro sports to give us a deeper understanding of how sports shape our everyday world.

Ideal for sparking classroom discussion, Fair and Foul is an excellent book for students of sports and society, American culture, and other courses
