Book Description:
Athletics plays a role in the lives of many throughout the world. Some people compete in organized athletic competition while others take part in more recreational forms of athletics. Maintaining an active lifestyle seems to be even more important today with all of the stresses of everyday life. Therefore, research related to athletics and sport has an important place in our society. This book seeks to add to this body of knowledge by providing 16 chapters that deal with different components of athletics and sport. The first 7 chapters provide research on business related aspects of athletics while the final 9 chapters revolve around psycho-social aspects of athletics. (Imprint: Nova)
