Three leading researchers in the sociology of sport have authored a text that will revolutionize the teaching of undergraduate sport sociology. Most sociology of sport texts merely describe sport in our society; The Social Significance of Sport goes on to explain why sport functions as it does in our society.

This text is not the usual topical approach to sport sociology; it provides a far more comprehensive, penetrating, and insightful analysis of contemporary sport. The text forms three parts, each detailing a major theme.

Part I considers how sport reflects the norms, values, and practices of other social institutions, such as the following: The family School and youth groups Politics and law The economy The mass media
Part II analyzes how sport fosters inequity or promotes social mobility for cross-sections of the population such as ethnic minorities, females, the financially disadvantaged, and older adults.
Part III examines how sport can encourage resistance and conflict. It also explores sport’s potential to stimulate social change beyond the world of sport and create subcultures that pursue the interests of disadvantaged groups.

The aim of this work is to present an anthology devoted to the philosophy of sport covering classic and recent literature. The intended audience is undergraduate and graduate students and scholars interested in sport in general. There are six parts. As an avid reader of the philosophy of sport, the author "find it quite relevant to any interest in parapsychology. In both parapsychology and sport the primary goal is to transcend physical limits. Moreover, ESP and PK tests, both informal and formal, can be classed in a game paradigm and some of them have been deliberately devised as games or forms of competition. In this connection, the chapters in Parts II and III are especially relevant. In PK, the analogy between parapsychology and sport is more apt. It is my guess that at the limits of human possibility where new records are set wherein humans transcend all previous limits and are the first to do so some form of psi may be involved, though it is not possible to separate it from the many physical, physiological, psychological, social, and even sociological factors involved. For these reasons this book provides a very useful introduction to the philosophy of sport".

William Morgan argues here that leftist theories have lost their critical edge and can no longer be counted on to transform sport society. Assessing these theories, he goes on to propose a new, reconstructed critical theory of sport, invoking the logical integrity of sport itself and the deliberations of sporting practice communities. The degradation of modern sport - its commercialization, its trivialization, its cult of athletic stars and celebrities, and its manipulation by the media - has led to numerous calls for its transformation. "Approaching the relations of sport and society with a truly philosophic mind, Morgan has important things to say that no one else has said with quite the same degree of detailed thoughtfulness. Leftist Theories of Sport is a critique not only of sports but also of contemporary society." - Allen Guttmann, author of The Olympics: A History of the Modern Games.
