In addition, each chapter has a useful one-page introduction and a bibliography of periodical articles. Questions for further discussion appear at the back of the book along with an annotated list of organizations to contact for further information...(this book) offers a cross-section of clearly written and cogently argued positions on social and political issues dealing with American sports.
