Taking a highly practical, applied approach this book provides an excellent applied introduction to sports sociology. Written by a collection of leading practitioners in the field, this book seeks to demonstrate how sociological theory can be understood and applied in the practical worlds of sport. In the first section contributors from the UK discuss key issues from a British perspective, exploring the relevance of sociology to the sports practitioner and the ways in which sociology knowledge and research can be applied to key roles in sport. The global framework in which sport exists is highlighted in chapters describing social class, national identities, commercialisation and globalisation from a sports perspective. Using authors drawn from North America, Canada and Australia the second section of the book provides an international perspective on the ways in which the sociology of sport can be of value in a range of practical contexts. Readership: All undergraduate and HNC/D students studying sports science, sports and recreation studies, leisure studies, human movement studies and kinesiology. It can also be used by more advanced students to extend knowledge across a range of topics, helping to make the complex links between theory and practice. This book will be valuable to practising or aspirant sport related practitioners, including sport managers/administrators, athletes, coaches and physical education teachers.
