Leftist Theories of Sport

A Critique and Reconstruction

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
