"This is a timely and useful book that will make a significant contribution. Sport psychologists are just beginning to assess whether or not sports have something positive to offer young people. Political leaders, educators, physical educators, school administrators, and community planners want useful ideas and evaluation information that tells them whether or not sports are an asset in young people's lives, especially poor and marginalized young people. This book takes an important step in this exploratory direction, and will help us plot a course for future research and advocacy." - Donald F. Sabo, coeditor of Masculinities, Gender Relations, and Sport "It is in both the individual scholarship and the juxtaposition of interdisciplinary perspectives that this book truly shines. The multiple voices focusing on similar issues from varying perspectives-research, theory, practical applications, athlete reflections-allow the reader to mentally walk around the complex issues of sport, youth, violence, sport violence, gender, race, and media." - Kate F. Hays, author of Working it Out: Using Exercise in Psychotherapy
