Item description for Sport, Space and the City by John Bale...
A decade since Sport, Space and the City was written, the sport-city nexus continues to be a focus of world attention. This global interest is reflected, in part, by the fact that while this book concentrates mainly on British football (soccer), it was well received in North America and translated into Japanese. Its widespread reception implies a degree of general interest and application of its contents. Almost all of it is fully relevant to the present day.
A geographical perspective, the view taken in this book, continues to inform studies of sport and the city. Space and place are now widely recognized by sports sociologists and sports historians as being central to their studies and Sport, Space and the City is often cited as a source of ideas and concepts that inform such studies. This reprinting will enable those previously denied access to an out-of-print book to enhance a geographical approach to the exploration of sport in the late modern city.
