"The sheer number of questions and topics raised in the course of this reimagining of the field as well as the plethora of sources used will make Sports, Violence and Society an important source for scholars of violence interested in broadening the horizons of the study of violence." - Sam Bieler, Criminal Law and Criminal Justice Books, May 2013
"[The book's] international aspect, and precising of various theoretical approaches certainly make it a worthwhile purchase for university libraries. It is a useful addition to an area of study which titillates and enthuses undergraduates, and provides constant challenges for scholars." – Managing Leisure
