The Decline of Civility and the Rise of Religion in American Sport.
Hoffman, Shirl J.
Quest, v51 n1 p69-84 Feb 1999
Discusses the decline of sympathy and civility and the rise of self-absorption and meanness in U.S. culture, noting that even sports tutor incivility. The paper examines lowered expectations and the cult of authenticity in sport, and it investigates religion as a counterforce to help restructure sport and restore some sense of balance between self-interest and sympathy.
