Sport, Theory And Social Problems: A Critical Introduction

Anderson, E.

9780415571265 - Sport, Theory And Social Problems: A Critical Introduction

Artikelomschrijving

* What impact does sport have on the lives of ordinary people? * How does sport help to perpetuate inequalities in society? * What can social theory tell us about the role of sport in society? At their origin competitive sports were institutionalized in Western cultures for the privilege of white, heterosexual men. Over time sport has become more open to categories of people traditionally marginalized in society: women; those from lower social classes; gay men; people of colour; and those differently abled. However, focusing solely on increased social inclusion in sport masks significant problems with both the culture and structure of sport. This critical textbook examines social exclusion in sport and analyzes the socio-negative attributes associated with competitive, institutionalized sport, for all who play. Focusing on sport at non-elite levels, this book explores the lives of everyday citizens who play and examines how inequality and social deviance are structured into the social and sporting system.
