About this Book

A Companion to Sport brings together writing by leading sports theorists and social and cultural thinkers, to explore sport as a central element of contemporary culture.

  • Positions sport as a crucial subject for critical analysis, as one of the most significant forms of popular culture
  • Includes both well-known social and cultural theorists whose work lends itself to an interrogation of sport, and leading theorists of sport itself
  • Offers a comprehensive examination of sport as a social and cultural practice and institution
  • Explores sport in relation to modernity, postcolonial theory, gender, violence, race, disability and politics
