About the Author

Michael A. Messner is a professor of sociology and gender studies at the University of Southern California, USA. He is the author of several books, including It's All for the Kids: Gender, Families, and Youth Sports and Some Men: Feminist Allies and the Movement to End Violence Against Women. Michela Musto is a Ph.D. candidate in sociology at the University of Southern California, USA. Her work has appeared in Gender, Society and Sociology of Sport Journal.


"Messner and Musto have pulled together a powerful collection of essays that offer panoramic insight and riveting detail. The voices of kids are truly revelatory and powerfully demonstrate children's cultural fluency within the constraints of age and other inequities. Child's Play is a rare achievement that centers kids' experience in sports while using it as a crucial prism onto other major sociological projects."
