In the second edition of Sport: A Critical Sociology, Richard Giulianotti brings social theory to bear upon the world of sport, drawing on scholars including Émile Durkheim, Max Weber, Karl Marx, Michel Foucault and Theodor Adorno. As Giulianotti advances a sociology of sport that explores its historical and cultural contexts, underlying social structures, power relations and the identities it engenders, this collection is of interest not only to sport scholars, but also to those working in critical social theory more broadly, writes Avash Bhandari.
