Description

Sports in society: sociological issues and controversies 2e is an Australian and New Zealand adaptation of the globally successful book by Jay Coakley. It retains all the strengths of the original work, while focusing on Australian and New Zealand experiences.
Organised around important issues and controversies in sport, like gender equity, the book examines the role of sports in society. It also offers a framework for analysing and discussing serious problems in the world of sport, and helps build an understanding of how cultural ideology influences our lives.
The text provides comprehensive coverage of contemporary areas of focus, such as the role of racial and ethnic minorities in sport, and makes a valuable contribution to this area of study.

Sports in society: sociological issues and controversies 2e is an essential resource for students undertaking tertiary studies in the area of sport sociology, sport management, human movement and allied fields such as sport science and recreation studies.
