Sports culture: an A-Z guideUser Review - Book Verdict
This encyclopedic dictionary claims to be concerned with the qualities and characteristics of sport and their effects on international society at large--with a heavy emphasis on race, gender, drugs, and violence. Yet the over 170 entries--90 percent written by Cashmore (sociology, Staffordshire Univ.)--are scattershot in organization, depth, and content and largely driven by a leftist agenda. Famous figures such as Hank Aaron and Michael Jordan compete for space with Big Daddy (a British wrestler!) and Bill Werbeniuk (a Canadian snooker player!) but not with Babe Ruth or Pele. A too-selective sampling of sports movies are also included. Additional entries include "Bars and Pubs," "Eroticism," "Globalization," "Imperialism," "Marxism," "Modernity/Postmodernity," Murdochization," "Spousal Abuse," and "Transsexuals." Only for libraries where the publisher's books are popular or those serving readers interested in quirky progressive titles.--John M. Maxymuk, Rutgers Univ. Lib., Camden, NJ ...
