This text offers a distinctive introduction to sport in contemporary society, drawing on recent developments in sociological theory and research, particularly in relation to debates about culture and consumption. The book argues that sport can be seen as central to the "economies of signs and space" of late modernity in which a concern with the body as an object of contemplation and improvement, and not just an instrument for getting things done, increasingly informs images in the mass media, politics and everyday life.
