This excellent new edition continues the legacy of the previous ten editions of "Sports in Society". Combining the original structure with new material, the authors introduce research and discussion which encompasses a global view of the sociology of sport. The sociology of sport is a sub-discipline of sociology that studies sports as part of social and cultural life. Sensitive topics, such as religion, have been integrated throughout the text to provide a holistic view of society. Drawing on a number of contemporary issues, terms and debates in sports, the authors use a range of specific cases to bring theory to life.
