The growth in broadcasting, merchandising, iconography and the commercialization of sports has led to an increasing interest in the emerging field of sports culture.

Recensioner i media

'Entertaining, informative and stimulating of new ideas, just the sort of reference to have close at hand and dip into from time time, either for information or inspiration. It is more suited to the academic than the public library, but a must for all those supporting studies in sport.' - Reference Reviews 'As well as being a valuable introduction to the subject, the book has suggestions for further reading, and is enjoyable to dip into.' - Library Association Record
