In this new edition of his acclaimed book, Richard Giulianotti provides a critical sociological interpretation of modern sport. As global festivals such as the Olympic Games and football’s World Cup demonstrate, sport’s social, political, economic and cultural significance is becoming ever more apparent across the world.

Ten years after its original publication, the text has been completely revised and updated to cover the most recent literature and to tackle the key contemporary issues of sport and society. Chapter by chapter, Giulianotti offers a cogent examination of widely taught sociological theories and topics that relate to sport, skilfully weaving together theory and examples. These include functionalism, Weberian sociology, Marxism and postmodern sociology, along with ethnicity, gender and globalization. Using an international range of case studies and research regarding a wide variety of sports, the new edition has furthered its commitment to making this important material especially accessible to undergraduate readers.

Sport: A Critical Sociology
remains the best sociological introduction to sport for upper-level undergraduate and postgraduate students on courses such as sport and leisure studies, cultural studies, and modern social theory.

Review:

"Richard Giulianotti is one of the world’s leading sport sociologists. In this new edition he once again proves that he is not only a very accomplished expert in the field but also a brilliant writer. The book provides an insightful overview of important sociological theories and their application to relevant phenomena of modern sport. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is interested in sport and cultural studies or social scientific studies of sports."
Ansgar Thiel, University of Tübingen, Germany

"Rigorous and clearly organized, this second edition stands out among the many introductory texts to sport sociology. Giulianotti’s critical sociological perspective is embedded in a solid discussion of social theory and pays close attention to the multiple meanings that individuals’ everyday actions bring to sport. The book inspires much-needed critical reflection on power inequalities in sport while exploring alternative forms of sporting practice. It is an essential text for any reader interested in understanding the complexities of contemporary sport."
Pirkko Markula, University of Alberta, Canada
