Fair and foul : beyond the myths and paradoxes of sport by D. Stanley Eitzen( Book )

36 editions published between 1999 and 2016 in English and held by 1,749 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Americans have long cherished sport for its display of superb skills, heroic efforts, selfless teamwork, uncanny strategies, exuberance, spontaneity, and loyalty. This book moves beyond the myths and media hype to take a closer look at America's love of sport and how it so often comes in conflict with our most basic values. With reverence yet a sharp eye for the influence of big business, corruption, price gouging, political maneuvering, and media grandstanding, Eitzen portrays famous and lesser known events from professional and college sports, including well known coaches and players, to give us a deeper understanding of what sports means to us and how it affects our everyday world."Publisher's description

"In Sociology of North American Sport, authors Sage and Eitzen--both former athletes and coaches--offer a compact yet comprehensive and integrated perspective on sport in North American society. Bringing a unique viewpoint to the subject, the authors analyze and, in turn, demythologize sport.

Paths to homelessness : extreme poverty and the urban housing crisis by Doug A Timmer( Book )

7 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 651 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An exploration of the economic and historical causes of homelessness is combined with accounts of individuals and families who are on the streets or in shelters and how they came to that point. Following an overview of the problem of homelessness and its causes, nine chapters present stories of homeless individuals, friends, and families. These stories demonstrate that there is no culture of poverty that makes people poor and no culture of homelessness that leaves them without shelter. These stories show that large numbers of people become homeless through the processes of urban and industrial decline. The increase in the numbers of homeless people is a result of the social and economic transformations of American cities since the late 1970s. The last two chapters review the complex and simple realities of homelessness and offer some suggestions for resolving it. Shelters and shelter services are not the answer to homelessness; the only real answer lies in the provision of sufficient low-income and affordable housing. (Contains 203 references.) (Sld)
