Sport, Animals, and Society free pdf In critical sport studies, the place of animals has been a relatively minor field of inquiry. Much of this research has addressed animals with regard to gambling, via studies of horse racing. Increasingly, however, "riding the animal studies wave," sport studies researchers are looking more extensively at interspecies relations and taking up topics connected to Posthumanism. In this book, contributors offer the first comprehensive overview of the implications of this new field for sports studies, exploring subjects including the horse-rider relationship, the marketing of professional rodeo, the ethics of the sport of dog agility, and many more.
