Social Issues in Sport
Social Issues in Sport, Second Edition, is an outstanding introduction to the multifaceted roles of sport and physical activity in society and the perfect tool for examining sport from a critical perspective. The text┐s engaging writing style, full-color format, and sound learning tools make it accessible and get students involved in and excited about the material. While the book is solidly grounded in research, it does not dwell on theory. Social Issues in Sport, Second Edition, provides a deeper look at the issues, contradictions, and confusion surrounding sport for students in sport management, sport sociology, or other areas of sport studies. Students will find heavy emphasis on areas that other texts often overlook such as the role of coaches, importance of lifetime sport and fitness, and sport for special populations such as the elderly.
