Summary

This volume examines modern sport in its social context and concludes that it is beset with over-commercialised motives, damaged by dangerous political alignments and marred by wrongheaded social values. The book provides a thought-provoking analysis and offers new insights into why and how modern sport has evolved into its present dominant position. It calls for radical reforms in the structure of, and attitudes towards, sport.
