Synopsis: Sociology is central to the study of sports in higher education. This textbook provides students in sports education with an introduction to the subject that is concise, comprehensive, and accessible. It gives readers a grounding in core sociological themes â€” such as power, diversity, and mediation â€” and relates them to contemporary social issues, such as commercialization and globalization.
