Sport Culture and Sociology examines the role that sport has played in human society from primitive cultures to the present day. Did sport begin simply for practical reasons such as training soldiers for war, or do humans have a less practical need to play active, physical games? How have different games migrated around the world, and what effect have new cultures had on these imports? Exciting and varied case studies are used throughout this book to illustrate issues and concepts.
