The father of one 10 year old hockey player beats to death the father of another following an on-ice incident between their sons. NBA player Ron Artest and other members of his then team, the Indiana Pacers, rush into the stands in Detroit during a game and touch off a wild melee with several fans, leaving several spectators injured and in need of medical attention. The Duke University lacrosse team rape accusation, a player's neck broken after being attacked from behind by an opponent in an NHL game, hooliganism in international soccer, hazing in US collegiate and high school athletic programs. The list goes on. In Sport and Violence, authors Jamieson and Orr take a critical look at these and other instances of "sports rage" and acts of aggression surrounding sport, attempting to explain where they come from and why, their impact on society outside of sport , as well as potential remedies for the problem. Understanding the process of aggression and how this behavior can emerge and develop into a form of rage is a complicated procedure that is influenced by many personal and social factors, all of which are examined in depth. Spanning the role of research, textbooks, and practitioner guidelines, Sport and Violence takes a comprehensive view of sport violence taking place in all sport settings, examining causes, manifestations, and providing potential solutions to this problem that has been plaguing many countries for a very long time. * Takes a critical look at the culture of violence that permeates and surrounds sport, including the sociological causes of that violence, and what can be done to mitigate them * Features an international perspective with examples of sport violence from throughout the world * Offers a historical view on sport violence and perspective on how and why it has evolved to what it is today
