This chapter takes up the ‘story’ of criminology by examining the new, radical and marxist criminologies that mention but do not study sport - save some work on football hooligans - which leads to a consideration of left realism. Issues of gender are raised throughout the book but here specifically feminist perspectives and those of the emerging masculinities literature examine violence by sports meant towards women (including the ‘Super Bowl’ effect.) Consideration is given to cultural criminology and to emerging green and queer perspectives.

Keywords:   masculinities, feminist, marxist, realism, violence
