This thought-provoking text explores these questions and introduces key debates in the sociology of sport. Uncovering the power dynamics within sport and bringing this everyday topic under a sociological lens, the book: Explores hot topics and contemporary controversies, such as e-gaming, fan violence and sex testing. Examines the central role of technology and the media in how sport is consumed, represented and played. Discusses a wide range of thinkers, from Gramsci to Castells. Reflects on developments in sport at local, global and national levels. With clearly explained theory and vibrant case examples, this text shows how we engage with sport in social, political, cultural and economic terms.
