With no competing works in the field, this seminal reference text focuses on what has become a large subdiscipline within the fields of sociology and sport studies.

The timely and comprehensive collection draws upon anthropology, cultural studies, education, history, human geography, media studies, political science and social policy to capture the theoretical, substantive and transnational diversity of the sociology of sport.

A mixture of classic papers and contemporary issues and debates, this major work examines the range of theoretical standpoints that have been used to explain sport; social conflicts and divisions within the field; cultural identities and social sites; and, the diverse influence of globalization processes upon sport.

Volume One: Core Theories and Perspectives on Sport

Volume Two: Social Divisions and Conflicts in Sport

Volume Three: Social Identities and Sites of Sport

Volume Four: Sport and Globalization

I strongly recommend this set of volumes produced by Richard Giulianotti, one of the most prominent global figures in the social-scientific study of sport. It is cross-disciplinary, extensively comparative, and global in its reach. Not merely is it the finest collection in the fields of sociology and sports studies, it successfully situates these as central to the social sciences

Professor Roland Robertson
Emeritus Professor, University of Aberdeen

[This four set volume] represent the highset degree of a solid and fundamentally fair, and highly qualified status report on development and content...Giulianotti has undoubtedly done a sterling job.
