After twenty-five years of teaching sport sociology, Dr. Crossman has noticed that many of her students enter the study of this discipline with their own perceptions of what sport and physical activity are all about. One or two courses later, their perceptions have changed remarkably. Like her students, you will learn that the opportunities to participate in sport aren’t equitable; that the control of sport is in the hands of a minority, that racism in sport still exists today, that economic and political forces shape what sport is today and what it might look like in the future; and that the mass media acts as a filter of what we see and how we see it. Canadian Sport Sociology not only examines such issues related to sport in Canada, but provides the foundations, theories and trends to give you a sound basis for understanding sport sociology from a uniquely Canadian perspective.
