Taking a highly practical, applied approach this book demonstrates how Sport Sociology can help sport practitioners by placing 'social things' at the center of sport. Written by a collection of leading practitioners in the field, this book seems to demonstrate how sociological theory can be understood and applied in the practical world of sport.

This is an essential introductory text for all students of Sports Science, Sports and Recreation Studies, Leisure Studies, Human Movement Studies and Kinesiology. This book will also be valuable to practicing or aspiring sport-related practitioners, from administrators and coaches to athletes and physical education teachers.
