Sport and Violence
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.

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.
