Hooliganism, violent behaviour in stadiums, a notable increase in
racist and xenophobic attitudes, doping, corruption, cheating,
wheeling-and-dealing: has sport lost its fun side and become a
serious social activity? Can it escape the influence of big
business and political interference? Does its prominence in the
media give rise to violent expression? Young people who no longer
recognise social values have turned sport into a means of
expressing the distress and problems they are facing in their own
lives. Does the often dubious relationship between sport, business
and politics, and the glorification of performance as a universal
model lead to an economic and mental form of violence? This book
takes a bearing on insanity and violence in sport in Europe.
