Abstract

Jarvie examines the history, nature, causes, and impact of
social inequality in sports. He notes that historical and comparative
cross-cultural analyses highlight significant economic, racial, and gender
biases in sports, along with important trends that offer insight on the
potential of sports as a tool for social progress in the twenty-first century.
