This is just one of the questions asked by this unique collection of personal stories of people involved in sport. Told by researchers who have closely observed what happens in the areas where people play sport and interviewed the participants, the contributions not only show how sport studies can contribute to the wider study of society, but also describe the difficulties and challenges involved in research of this kind. Inside Sports is divided under four main sections which cover the major important social processes that make up sport experiences in different settings and of different people: early experiences: being introduced to sports experience and identity: becoming an athlete deep in the experience: doing sports transition experiences: life beyond the playing field In its extensive coverage of the topic as well as its discussion of research methods, Inside Sports will be essential reading for students at all levels learning to do research in this growing area of interest

Sports in society : Issues and Controversies, ANZ edition by Jay J Coakley( Book )

5 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sports in Africa reflect a complex, colonial history in which recent democratic changes have set out to redistribute wealth, reclaim notions of an African heritage and celebrate diversity. With a growing need to discuss and analyse issues, images and controversies with relevance to both the African and South African contexts, a detailed introduction to the sociology of sport is provided within this, the southern African edition of Sports in society: issues and controversies. This adaptation of the American and international editions provides a meaningful framework and depth of sociological issues, theories, concepts and sporting practices in Africa, and then also particularly South Africa. Inevitably, there are many similarities within this framework to the original text, and it therefore still forms the basis of exploring the dynamic relationship between sports, culture and society."
