The New Sport Management Reader

Sport, like other phenomena we find in social life, is subject to the inequalities of race, gender, economics, and politics. Each of the chapters in this book rejects the purity and neutrality of sport; as such they add to our understanding of sport and the organizations that deliver it. . . . If we use the ideas of critical theory and expand the geographic scope of our research, we will be able to improve an expanding and rapidly growing area of study. —From the Foreword by Trevor Slack
