How do figurational sociologists approach the subjects of sport and leisure? How does their approach differ from other approaches in the field?.;This collection offers an introduction to the figurational sociology of sport and leisure. The features of the approach are explained and contriburors show how figurational sociology is applied in the analysis of concrete problems. However, the collection also gives space to critics of the figurational approach. Included here are contributions which claim that the approach is inaccruate, blinkered and irrelevant. The book ends with a commentary by Eric Dunning on the strengths of figurational sociology in comparison with other approaches in the field.
