This study provides the reader with an insider's view of North American professional hockey. It is a qualitative study which utilizes a symbolic interactionist theoretical framework to examine the in-group perspectives. It is suggested that violence has a distinct meaning within the North American professional hockey community, and this meaning is shared among the majority of the game's participants. It is also proposed that this professional hockey community represents an occupational subculture of violence, and proviolence perspectives emerge from common experiences and interaction with other group members.Dept. of Sociology and Anthropology.
