    Description: In this new edition of his acclaimed book, Richard Giulianotti provides a critical sociological interpretation of modern sport. As global festivals such as the Olympic Games and football s World Cup demonstrate, sport s social, political, economic and cultural significance is becoming ever more apparent across the world. Ten years after its original publication, the text has been completely revised and updated to cover the most recent literature and to tackle the key contemporary issues of sport and society. Chapter by chapter, Giulianotti offers a cogent examination of widely taught sociological theories and topics that relate to sport, skilfully weaving together theory and examples. These include functionalism, Weberian sociology, Marxism and postmodern sociology, along with ethnicity, gender and globalization. Using an international range of case studies and research regarding a wide variety of sports, the new edition has furthered its commitment to making this important material especially accessible to undergraduate readers. Sport: A Critical Sociology remains the best sociological introduction to sport for upper-level undergraduate and postgraduate students on courses such as sport and leisure studies, cultural studies, and modern social theory.

Category: Books
Description: Sport revolves around two things: narrative and numbers. You need the narrative, otherwise why would anyone care about sport? Rivalries, emotions, and sporting legends all require it. But sport also needs numbers. Without them, we have no idea who has won. We need numbers to tell which team is top of the table, or who is the world champion. Sports Geek is a visual and numerical tour through sporting debates and ideas. Teams in all sports use data to create extraordinary analysis of how their players perform, to assess tactics and to get an edge over arch rivals; but fans are rarely presented with challenging and informative data that would help them to further understand sport. You'll never see sport the same way again.

Sports Injuries
Category: Books
Description: Vivian Grisogono passes on years of experience as a sports participant and physiotherapist, making this book, now completely updated, the most effective guide to coping with injuries and getting back to sport. Indispensable reading for not only sportsmen and women of all types and ages, but also to coaches, PE teachers, and medical and paramedical practitioners interested in sports injuries. Injuries are described `geographically', from foot to neck, and then down the arm. The causes of injury are explained, to help you understand how and why a particular injury occurs, whether it's a sudden traumatic injury like the sprinter's hamstring tear or the squash player's Achilles tendon rupture, or a gradual overuse injury like tennis elbow or runner's shin soreness. Self-diagnosis is extremely difficult, and this book aims to help the reader to identify the possible causes of pain, in order to present a clear picture of the problem to a medical practitioner, so that they can make a speedy and accurate diagnosis. The first-aid and immediate self-help measures you should take for any injury, before you manage to see a medical practitioner, are described. Following diagnosis, rehabilitation principles for each injury are given, from the very early stages of recovery, through to your return to sport. For tendon and muscle injuries, the progression starts with passive stretching for flexibility, then you re-strengthen the injured muscle group, until the final stage when you work the muscles in co-ordination with the surrounding muscles. For joint injuries, you have to regain stability through strengthening exercises, then gradually mobilize the injured joint, before moving into the final phase of co-ordinating exercises. All the specific exercises for achieving these aspects of recovery are illustrated in detail, for each injury throughout the body.

Description: ' For 30 years I was the voice of sport at The Times - but that's enough about me. What matters is sport.' This is an autobiography from which the author, award-winning writer Simon Barnes, has been surgically removed. He has reported on six World Cups, seven Olympic Games, cricket on five continents and more than 20 Wimbledons, watching Diego Maradona, Usain Bolt, Sachin Tendulkar and Roger Federer at their peak. Along the way he had soul-revealing conversations with Ayrton Senna and sat on Desert Orchid. His journalist's experience gives him perspective, until the addictive madness of sport takes over. Epic is a stunning mosaic of some of the greatest sporting moments in recent years, which build up to provide the reader with a better idea of what sport is for, what differentiates winners from losers, and reveals how sport teaches us how better to enjoy life. This is sport unplugged. Speaking for itself. Allowing the reader to understand sport with more clarity and depth than ever before.
