Really great book which explores a number of masculinities topics in the sporting environment. A substancial number of our students explore violence and masculinities for their dissertations and this has been passed on as Core for their work in addition to essential reading on all sports sociology modules that include gender and deviance.
A seminal text in the area of masculinities and sport! This will be adopted.
This is a clear and thoughtfully comprised book. McKay demonstrates not only a thorough understanding of the complex socio-cultural issues that confound the discipline, but also, a genuine sensibility toward and sensitivity about how these influence athletes' lives, experiences and identities and the sport industry writ large. His use of a range of novel examples from a variety of different context should certainly be appreciated by contemporary sport studies students.
A useful collection of papers which, while a little dated now, still hold relevance in ongoing debates surrounding masculinities and sports culture.

A key text in understanding and applying gender in sports studies. Varied practical examplars from authors makes for interesting and critical reading. When the sociological content of the courses expands at Hartpury I will recommend further.
