In Gendering Bodies, Crawley, Foley and Shehan demonstrate how gendered messages about bodies and the social world shape our physical bodies and social selves. At work, in sports and during sex, gendered messages constantly organize our common, everyday settings through a feedback loop of confirmations and disruptions in everyday talk and interaction. This book is an accessible, yet comprehensive, theory of a sociology of the gendered body.

Beautiful and powerful, Strong Like Her presents the awe-inspiring account of women’s athleticism throughout history. Journalist Haley Shapley takes us through the delightful untold history of female strength to understand how we can better encourage—and celebrate—the physical power of women. Part group biography, part cultural history, Strong Like Her delves into the fascinating stories of our muscular foremothers. From the first female Olympian (who entered the chariot race through a loophole) to the circus stars who could lift their husbands above their heads and make it look like “a little light housework with a feather duster,” these brave and brawny women paved the way for the generations to follow. Filled with Sophy Holland’s beautiful por­traits of some of today’s most awe-inspiring ath­letes, Strong Like Her celebrates strength in all its forms. Illuminating the lives and accomplish­ments of storied female sports stars—whose con­tributions to society go far beyond their entries in record books—Shapley challenges us to rethink everything we thought we knew about the power of women.

Sports and Inequality is a comprehensive collection of annotated writings examining the legal and social implications of discrimination in both the professional and amateur sports contexts. The text examines the full scope of sports discrimination issues, specifically, the history of and contemporary experience with discrimination based on race, gender, disability, ethnic background, age, religion, and sexual orientation.Topics embrace the paradigmatic discrimination issues, including disparities in employment and educational contexts and the exclusion of persons from public facilities or services based on race, gender, or disability. A considerable portion of the book is devoted to the absence of racial and gender diversity both on the playing fields and in the front office, with particular emphasis on hiring, advancement, and compensation. The book also addresses less obvious examples of inequality, such as the effect of offensive logos on trademark certification; private clubs and the extent to which their systematic exclusion of minorities and women can and should be combated; NCAA eligibility criteria; abuse of spouses or partners by athletes and mistreatment of athletes, particularly young women, by coaches and other authority figures; and a score of related subjects.The text considers its topics from a broad spectrum of perspectives, utilizing both legal and non-legal resources — judicial opinions, statutory provisions, and articles and book excerpts from a variety of disciplines — to offer a wide-ranging survey of views on sports and inequality. The writings are supplemented with extensive notes, questions, references, and in-class exercises.

Gregg Easterbrook, author of the wildly popular ESPN.com column Tuesday Morning Quarterback takes on football's place in American society. Gridiron football is the king of sports – it's the biggest game in the strongest and richest country in the world. Of the twenty most-watched television broadcasts ever, both in the United States and internationally, all twenty were Super Bowls. In The King of Sports, Easterbrook tells the full story of how football became so deeply ingrained in American culture. Both good and bad, he examines its impact on American society at all levels of the game. The King of Sports explores these and many other topics: * The real harm done by concussions (it's not to NFL players). * The real way in which college football players are exploited (it's not by not being paid). * The way football helps American colleges (it's not bowl revenue) and American cities (it's not Super Bowl wins). * What happens to players who are used up and thrown away (it's not pretty). * The hidden scandal of the NFL (it's worse than you think). Using his year-long exclusive insider access to the Virginia Tech football program, where Frank Beamer has compiled the most victories of any active NFL or major-college head coach while also graduating players, Easterbrook shows how one big university "does football right." Then he reports on what's wrong with football at the youth, high school, college and professional levels. Easterbrook holds up examples of coaches and programs who put the athletes first and still win; he presents solutions to these issues and many more, showing a clear path forward for the sport as a whole. Rich with reporting details from interviews with current and former college and pro football players and coaches, The King of Sports promises to be the most provocative and best-read sports book of the year.
