Description

Published Under the Garamond Imprint

Hockey Night in Canada will appeal to all readers interested in the wider implications of sport in our society. The authors look at the roots of the modern game. They discuss such elements as the everyday working world of professional hockey, hockey in small communities, violence in professional and minor leagues, and issues of Canadian identity. The book examines the profound changes and pressures on hockey within a growing global marketplace for commercial spectacle.
