Social Theory for Sports Lovers

Research output: Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook


Sport looms large in current times, entwined with political movements, climate change, and pandemic. Yet what is sport’s function in society? Through the lens of respected intellectual traditions, Social Theory for Sports Lovers engages with this wondrous, sometimes decadent thing, sport. Readers --including those whose lives are happily empty of sports-- become savvy scholars: each chapter unfolds around unique humanities concepts not often linked to thought about sport and social issues. The book challenges taken-for-granted notions and builds anew understandings of sport and humankind.
