In Sociology of North American Sport, authors Sage and Eitzen - both former athletes and coaches - offer a compact yet comprehensive and integrated perspective on sport in North American society. Bringing a unique viewpoint to the subject, the authors 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.
