The Social Psychology of Exercise and Sport examines the
role that social psychology has in the explanation of exercise
and sport behavior. It devotes considerable attention to key
social psychological issues within the two disciplines, exercise
behavior for health reasons, and the behavior of competitive
sport participants and the spectators of elite sport. The book
focuses on a narrow range of selected topics and provides
comprehensive, in-depth, and analytical coverage using social
psychology as a framework.
