Abstract

Designed primarily for undergraduate courses in gender and sport, sport sociology, socio-cultural sport studies, social problems in sport, and gender studies, Critical Perspectives on Gender and Sport provides an entry into the qualitative and quantitative study of gender and sport in North America and internationally. The essays present critical research, key issues, and theoretical developments on gender and sport related to four main themes, including: (i) sport and gender identity, (ii) gender, media, and sport, (iii) masculinity and sport, and (iv) gender resistance, conflict, and transformation in sport.
