Sociology of Sport | Sport & Leisure Studies (General)
Sport Sociology provides a comprehensive overview for any student taking a course on the subject at college or university, including both established and emergent themes, from issues around power, diversity and consumerism through to newer topics such as the digital environment and climate change – both now covered in new individual chapters.
Other chapters have been fully revised to include up-to-date literature and case studies, as well as new key terms and reflective tasks. A new ‘Key Thinker’ box feature included in each chapter introduces readers to an esteemed theorist relevant for the chapter topic to help link theoretical concepts to practice and offer up suggestive research directions for student assessment.
An excellent theoretical focus on issues within sport in the digital age.
A very good text, building upon many of Peter Craig's previous work.
This is a very useful text. I can use it for a number of sport sociology modules taught across the undergraduate programme. Very clear, assessable style for students.
Clear learning outcomes for each chapter that can be used to support teaching sessions. In addition the Student Reflection Tasks are very useful to use in teaching sessions alongside the chapter.
Good range of relevant, up to date (emerging) topics as well as providing sections on the foundation themes to sports sociology.
Interesting read and the format makes the learning clear with student activities and reflection
