Media attention has recently raised public awareness of hazing rituals, generating curiosity, interest and debate about hazing as an initiation practice. Making the Team is a groundbreaking collection of contemporary perspectives on this topic. This book provides a theoretical analysis of hazing from a sociological perspective, both in the United States and in Canada. It is designed to provide an understanding of hazing for use in sociology and sport management classes and also is highly suitable for courses that examine gender roles and socialization. The collection chronicles the hazing practices that exist in sport and offers an historical overview of hazing and its emergence in today's sport culture. It also provides a theoretical and legal guide for understanding and managing hazing in sport.
