Sport and Democracy in the Ancient and Modern Worlds

Book Description :

This book explores the relationship between sport and democratization. Drawing on sociological and historical methodologies, it provides a framework for understanding how sport affects the level of egalitarianism in the society in which it is played. The author distinguishes between horizontal sport, which embodies and fosters egalitarian relations, and vertical sport, which embodies and fosters hierarchical relations. Christesen also differentiates between societies in which sport is played and watched on a mass scale and those in which it is an ancillary activity. Using ancient Greece and nineteenth-century Britain as case studies, Christesen analyzes how these variables interact and finds that horizontal mass sport has the capacity to both promote and inhibit democratization at a societal level. He concludes that horizontal mass sport tends to reinforce and extend democratization.

Book Description :

Sports law literature has evolved over the last twenty years as writers have successfully grappled with the myriad of legal and quasi-legal issues that arise in the context of sports. As a result of their efforts, scholars addressing these topics have heightened our understanding of the complex factual, legal, and social issues that sports matters generate. This anthology seeks to continue this development. It includes excerpts, primarily of law review articles, that address the broad dimensions of sports and the law.Rather than simply explain the law, the excerpts contained in Sports and the Law seek also to examine the multiple variables that have influenced the development of the law of sports. After presenting contrasting views on whether sports law represents a discrete substantive area of law, the anthology explores several sports settings and the application of legal rules to them. These include: business and economic (e.g., antitrust, taxation, intellectual property, and franchise relocation); institutional relationships (formation and governance of sports leagues and student athlete/university relationships); labor (collective bargaining); constitutional (right to participate and drug testing); social and ethical (racism, gender equity, agent regulation, and ADA); and torts (educational and medical malpractice, assumption of risk, and workers' compensation).This anthology makes accessible articles that enhance the reader's understanding of topics traditionally covered in sports law classes, as well as topics that typically escape class coverage.

Book Description :

Australians are often said to be obsessed with sport, and playing and watching sport have long been regarded as national pastimes. Sport in Australian History is an innovative and exciting study of the political, economic, social, and cultural role that sport has played in Australia sinceEuropean settlement.The authors investigate many of the myths surrounding the place of sport in Australian culture. They demonstrate that, although Australians are far from unique in their fascination with sport, a historical study of their involvement -- both as participants and spectators -- can nevertheless tellus a great deal about Australian society. Indeed, in many respects, sport can be viewed as a microcosm of wider society, reflecting, for example, attitudes to violence and gender relations.Taking a thematic approach, the authors dwell on the values, ideas, and myths that have shaped the nations sporting culture over time. The book focuses on issues such as the sports industry; the place of women; the participation of groups not traditionally involved in mainstream Australian sport(such as Aborigines, the disabled, ethnic groups, and the aged); the influence of science and technology; and controversial topics such as violence, drugs, corruption, the law, and the role of childrens sport.Readers interested in sport, culture, recreation, and history will find much to enjoy in this challenging and thought-provoking book.

Book Description :

"Race, Sport and the American Dream is the culmination of a five-year research project investigating the scope and consequences of the deepening relationship between African American males and the institution of sport. It examines how sport has changed the nature of African American civil society and has come to be a major influence on economic opportunities, schooling, and the shaping of African American family life. The book probes the broader socio-cultural milieu surrounding the dialectic of African American athletes and mainstream American society. Smith examines the colonizing and exploitative nature of intercollegiate sports and the special arrangements that universities have with the world of sport through the lens of Immanuel Wallerstein's "World-Systems Paradigm." He also analyzes the world of professional sports, from NASCARto the NBA. All of the topics in this book, from youth violence, to sport as big business, to incivility and criminal behavior by athletes, to the lack of leadership and management opportunities in their sports for African American athletes who retire from play, to the question of the biological superiority of African American athletes verses white athletes, are addressed within the context of the history of racial oppression that has dominated race relations in the United States since its inception as a nation-state in the 1620s."--BOOK JACKET.

Book Description :

Contrary to the popular belief that sport is an arena largely free from the corrosive effects of racism, this book argues that racism is evident throughout British sport. From playing fields and boardrooms of sports organisations, to the offices of sports policy makers and the media, this book breaks new ground in showing how discourses of 'race' and nation continue to pervade our sporting life. Looking at a range of sports, including football, rugby league and cricket, this book covers key topics such as: * British nationalism and nationalist ideology * racial science and the images of Asian and black physicality * sport, racism and the law * black feminism and the issues of race, gender and sport * the role of the media in perpetuating and challenging racial stereotypes. Challenging the prevailing liberal view that sport is one area of society where 'good race-relations' are developed, this book offers a wealth of research material, and a strong theoretical perspective on contemporary British sport. It will therefore be of vital interest to sociologists, sports studies students, sport policy-makers and anyone with an interest in contemporary British sport.
