Understanding Sport : An Introduction to the Sociological and Cultural Analysis of Sport
A refreshing and necessary addition to the existing literature, this text is accessible yet at the same time rigorous in its coverage. It is designed to stimulate and guide students toward a greater understanding of the phenomenon of sport in today's society. Understanding Sport will introduce students to the central elements of a sociological and cultural analysis of sport. Its coverage is specific to sport in modern British society. Key features include: up-to-date coverage of key socio-cultural issues; suggested further reading, to expand students understanding of the topics introduced; end-of-chapter essay topics and questions, to help students consolidate their knowledge; extensive reference lists and a thematic index, to direct students and lecturers toward further research materials. Written by three highly respected authorities in the field, Understanding Sport will be an invaluable tool for those studying and teaching sport studies at the introductory level. J.
