Book Summary:

Sports and Inequality is a comprehensive collection of annotated writings examining the legal and social implications of discrimination in both the professional and amateur sports contexts. The text examines the full scope of sports discrimination issues, specifically, the history of and contemporary experience with discrimination based on race, gender, disability, ethnic background, age, religion, and sexual orientation.Topics embrace the paradigmatic discrimination issues, including disparities in employment and educational contexts and the exclusion of persons from public facilities or services based on race, gender, or disability. A considerable portion of the book is devoted to the absence of racial and gender diversity both on the playing fields and in the front office, with particular emphasis on hiring, advancement, and compensation. The book also addresses less obvious examples of inequality, such as the effect of offensive logos on trademark certification; private clubs and the extent to which their systematic exclusion of minorities and women can and should be combated; NCAA eligibility criteria; abuse of spouses or partners by athletes and mistreatment of athletes, particularly young women, by coaches and other authority figures; and a score of related subjects.The text considers its topics from a broad spectrum of perspectives, utilizing both legal and non-legal resources — judicial opinions, statutory provisions, and articles and book excerpts from a variety of disciplines — to offer a wide-ranging survey of views on sports and inequality. The writings are supplemented with extensive notes, questions, references, and in-class exercises.

Book Summary:

Mega-events like the Olympics, the World Cup of soccer, the World Series of baseball, cycling's Tour de France, and the Super Bowl draw our attention to the deep cultural significance of sport and its role in fostering social bonds. Yet when it comes to sport, there is no shortage of debate: stereotypes regarding sexuality, race, gender, and children have been hotly contested by critics for over 40 years. Even today, sport is one of the very few socially accepted sites of violence, intense competition and controlled forms of social disorder. Battleground: Sports presents the 100 most contentious public and private controversies of the sports world. Highlighted throughout are debates surrounding ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and social identity, sports fan behavior, as well as the role of governments and corporations. Engaging and accessible to a wide variety of readers, this fascinating reference illustrates how sports controversies reflect the historically enduring and changing nature of our broader cultures, and the social battles we engage on a day-to-day basis surrounding the struggles for equality, debates about social violence, the ethics of competition, the politics of civic life, the creation of global communities, and the State's role in protecting citizens. Entries contain an array of thoughtful perspectives on historic and current controversies, and allow readers to formulate their own conclusions. Enhanced with a timeline, a thorough guide of print and electronic resources for high school and undergraduate student research, this one-stop reference goes beyond the newspaper headlines to provide readers with a guide map for understanding what sport controversies teach us about our culture and ourselves.
