Summary "This book provides a theoretical analysis of hazing from a sociological perspective, both in the United States and in Canada. It is designed to provide an understanding of hazing for use in sociology and sport management classes, and is also highly suitable for courses that examine gender roles and socialization." "The collection chronicles the hazing practices that exist in sport, and offers an historical overview of hazing and its emergence in today's sport culture. It also provides a theoretical and legal guide for understanding and managing hazing in sport." "The discussion focuses on the role of tradition, power, and violence in hazing, and on how the rituals serve as a confirmation of masculinity and dominance. These issues engage the reader in critical thought about a contentious aspect of sport that has until recently remained unchallenged."--BOOK JACKET.
