Now in its tenth edition, Sociology of North American Sport offers a compact yet comprehensive and integrated perspective on sport in North American society. Bringing a unique viewpoint to the subject, George H. Sage and D. Stanley Eitzen analyze and, in turn, demythologize sport. This method promotes an understanding of how a sociological perspective differs from common-sense perceptions about sport and society, helping students to understand sport in a new way.

"The book takes an expansive approach that uses sports as a lens to view some of the key areas of North American society. These complex interconnectivities display how sports are not simply the games we play, but rather reflect and recreate the social realities that exist all around us. The authors have a strong writing style that is incredibly user-friendly. They don't talk over the student's head, but likewise, they don't dumb the material down."--Jeffrey Ratcliffe, Drexel University
