Summary
"This book presents a timely collection of theoretical debates and case-studies relevant to the advancement of sport-in-development as a pertinent area of research. It investigates the capacity of sport to act both as a conduit for traditional development assistance activities and as an agent for change in its own right. The book argues that sport can contribute to the development process, particularly where traditional development approaches have difficulty in engaging with communities. It contends that understanding the opportunities and limitations for sport-in-development contributes to an appreciation of the fundamental challenges currently facing the development community, and provides a useful analytical tool for those engaged in the development process."--BOOK JACKET
