Sport and Violence: A Critical Examination of Sport (2nd ed.) explores a global view of issues in sport and leisure and it provides an approach that allows for critical analysis and development of solutions to such problems. Each chapter contains not only textual content but also real-world examples of sports experiences from individuals.

The chapters also include much background information that can be further researched. The initial portion of the text contains an analysis of the key problems associated with sport and violence, its history, and its status. Later chapters more thoroughly represent societal factors and issues, and the final portion of the text discusses solutions and approaches that may provide a springboard for change.

The authors have taught at the higher education level. They have also served as player, official, supervisor, coach, and sport ad­ministrator and in administrative capacities in park and recreation departments.

This book is intended for use in upper division and graduate courses in sport management. This book can also assist an administrator to organize a safer and more civil sports experience.
