Sociology of sport and social theory

Smith, e.

9780736075725 - Sociology of sport and social theory

Artikelomschrijving

This book recognises sociology of sport as an important subject area for general sociologists to consider as a rich area of research possibility, while also exposing sport sociologists to the social theories that have built up the general discipline. This new book exposes readers to the thinking of great sociologists such as Weber, Mills, Denzin and Elias. It also explains and applies established social theories into sport contexts, including Tiger Woods' dominance, institutional logic within the NCAA and the melding of sport and religion. Utilising major scholars in both sociology of sport and the general discipline of sociology, this book explains and applies established social theories into sport and physical activity contexts. Chapter authors masterfully give the reader a clear understanding of the development of the most pertinent social theories as they relate to sport and then apply those theories to some of the most pressing issues in contemporary sport. Whether readers want to read this book in its entirety for an extensive treatment of sociological theory, or dip into it as a guide for understanding the theoretical basis for studies they read or initiate themselves, this book will be a valuable reference.
