Praise

“An examination of the heartland of masculinity. . . Power at Play tells us about [sport’s] compelling allure, its ability to bestow self-confidence and social status. . . but also [about] the dark side of the athletic subculture. A work of clarity and insight.” —Gender and Society

“An eye opener about sport and its meaning. . . Loaded with valuable insights.” —San Francisco Chronicle

“The first examination of American jock culture that makes sense to me . . . Parents of young kids may find it especially interesting.” —Whole Earth Review
