Sport, Leisure and Social Relations Summary

Sport, Leisure and Social Relations by John Horne (University of Central Lancashire, UK)

When this book was first published the study of sport had been largely neglected by sociologists. The contributions to this volume bring the sports field, the leisure centre and everyday leisure activities to a more central position within the sociological enterprise. Whether amateur or professional, sport contributes to wider relations of power, privilege and domination and this debate represents an important phase in the sociology of sport and leisure.
