    Addresses key themes such as globalization, mobility and identity
  • Explores the unique interrelationship that exists in a sport tourism context between activity, people and place
  • Includes case studies written by a range of leading scholars from around the world

Set to be the an essential text for any student or academic in the field, this book cements and advances previous studies by building upon existing literature, while extending the field by exploring avenues of study that are yet to be comprehensively addressed.
