Sport and Violence takes a critical look at the culture of `sports rage' and aggression in the sporting industry, covering ethical, historical and sociological causes and impacts. It examines international examples of sport violence, including: the father of a tennis competitor placing a drug in the drinks of her competitors; a player's neck broken after being attacked from behind by an opponent in an NHL game; hooliganism in international soccer and more. The book not only attempts to explain how and why such violence originates, it examines its impact on society outside sport and suggests potential remedies for the problem. This book:

Examines the culture of violence that permeates and surrounds sport, including the sociological causes of that violence, and what can be done to mitigate themFeatures an international perspective with examples of sport violence from throughout the worldOffers a historical view on the evolution of violence in sport

Its up-to-date and in-depth coverage of a controversial issue makes this book a valuable asset to both sports students and professionals working in sports management.
