Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0387977929, Paperback)

The Social Psychology of Sport covers all aspects of sports, in chapters that range from motivation to spectatorship, starting with the decision to pursue sports activities and leading to the dangers inherent in the collective actions of fans. Performance, social influence, group dynamics, leadership, heroes, personality, aggression and catharsis are discussed incisively in the various chapters, which are based on solid research findings and are followed by helpful, annotated bibliographic suggestions. This book, which is a practical, informative and valuable addition to the literature, is aimed primarily at senior undergraduate and graduate students. It is also of interest to others who seek an understanding of the psychological dynamics underlying sports behavior.
