ABOUT THIS BOOK
ABOUT THIS BOOK
The degradation of modern sport -- its commercialization, its trivialization, its cult of
athletic stars and celebrities, and its manipulation by the media -- has led to numerous
calls for its transformation.
"Approaching the relations of sport and society with a truly philosophic mind, Morgan
has important things to say that no one else has said with quite the same degree of
detailed thoughtfulness. Leftist Theories of Sport is a critique not only of sports
but also of contemporary society." -- Allen Guttmann, author of The Olympics: A History of the Modern Games
