Using a topics-based approach organized around provocative questions about the interaction of sports, culture and society, Sports in Society presents an accessible introduction to research and theory in the sociology of sport.This new edition continues the legacy of the previous editions while introducing new material and examples that bring theory to life.

Current debates in sports, such as how youth participation can be increased or sport funding allocated, have been integrated throughout the text to provide a holistic view of society.An Online Learning Centre accompanies this book offering a range of lecturer support materials as well as resources and tests for students.
