9780415483933: NTU Sports Textbook Pack: Sport, Culture and Society: An Introduction, second edition

It is impossible to fully understand contemporary society and culture without acknowledging the place of sport. Sport is part of our social and cultural fabric, possessing a social and commercial power that makes it a potent force in the world, for good and for bad. Sport has helped to start wars and promote international reconciliation, while every government around the world commits public resources to sport because of its perceived benefits. From the bleachers to the boardroom, sport matters.

Now available in a fully revised and updated new edition, this exciting, comprehensive and accessible textbook introduces the study of sport, culture and society. International in scope, the book explores the key social theories that shape our understanding of sport as a social phenomenon and critically examines many of the assumptions that underpin that understanding. Placing sport at the very heart of the analysis, and including vibrant sporting examples throughout, the book introduces the student to every core topic and emerging area in the study of sport and society, including:

  • the history and politics of sport
  • sport and globalization
  • sport and the media
  • sport, violence and crime
  • sport, the body and health
  • sport and the environment
  • alternative sports and lifestyles
  • sporting mega-events
  • sport and development.

Each chapter includes a wealth of useful features to assist the student, including chapter summaries, highlighted definitions of key terms, practical projects, revision questions, boxed case-studies and biographies, and guides to further reading, with additional teaching and learning resources available on a companion website. Sport, Culture and Society is the most broad-ranging and thoughtful introduction to the socio-cultural analysis of sport currently available and sets a new agenda for the discipline. It is essential reading for all students with an interest in sport.

Recensione:

'An excellent book that is a must-read for anyone interested in the study of sport and society in an increasingly globalized world. It provides a compelling and convincing case for why sport matters in everyday life and why its socio-cultural significance deserves to be treated more seriously than ever before', Dr Andy Smith, University of Chester, UK

‘Sport, Culture & Society is simply terrific. In this new edition, Professor Grant Jarvie provides a brilliant synthesis of research and provides a telling interpretation of the role and meaning of sport in society. The book is structured into four parts, and, in each chapter Grant Jarvie shows an expert command of the topic. This is a must read for colleagues and students alike', Professor Joe Maguire, Loughborough University, UK

‘From its multidisciplinary socio-cultural foundations through to the multi-layered analyses of sport, this text expertly brings together the interconnections between sport, culture and society in an accessible and meaningful way. It equips readers with the tools to think critically about the place of sport in the fabric of society and their own lives', Dr Jason Tuck, University of Winchester, UK

‘This is an extraordinarily useful book. It is superbly organized, thoughtfully researched and cogently argued. What I like most about it is the way it places contemporary sport in the dynamics of recent history, so that readers can see sport and ourselves in the changes and decisions humans can influence, even make. Jarvie challenges every one of us to think about sport and social responsibility', Professor Bruce Kidd, University of Toronto, Canada

‘This vastly expanded and researched second edition gifts both the interdisciplinary international community and academy a clear assessment of sport's place in the world to-day along with some of the key emerging social issues. Comprehensive and accessible ... anyone genuinely interested in the potential of sport to make a difference in the world we live in should definitely read it', Professor Synthia Sydnor, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, US
