Summary
"Violence is considered an acceptable--and sometimes even desirable--part of many organized sports. Hard hits are praised in football and hockey, and boxers are idolized for being able to knock out their opponents. What kinds of implications can the normalization of violence have off of the field? Readers are presented with examples of sports-related violence and various theories for why violence among athletes is so prevalent. Presented alongside the unbiased text are quotes from athletes and other experts, detailed charts, and engaging sidebars that encourage young adults to think critically about this serious issue" --
