Series description

Research in the Sociology of Sport (RSS) reflects the current themes in the sociology of sport and also captures innovative trends as they emerge in the work of scholars across the globe. The series brings together research from experts on established topics whilst also directing attention to themes that are at the 'cutting-edge' of this sub-discipline.

This exciting series examines the relationships between sport, culture and society. The function, meaning and significance of sport in contemporary societies are critically appraised. Attention is given to both small-scale micro levels of interaction in sport subcultures and also to how these sport subcultures exist within the macro processes reflected in the historical and structural features of societies.

Each volume of Research in the Sociology of Sport features specially commissioned experts examining a common theme.
