Summary

The third edition of this outstanding introductory text once again gives students a thorough overview of the academic and professional aspects of the field of sport and exercise science. This new edition also offers an online student study guide that becomes an integral part of the learning experience. The editor and contributors, all top scholars and professionals in their fields of expertise, cohesively demonstrate to readers how the many subject areas in the vibrant field of kinesiology work together to develop a unified body of knowledge out of many diverse areas. The book is divided into three parts: Experiencing Kinesiology, Scholarly Study of Kinesiology and Professional Practice in Kinesiology. Entry-level readers of the field of kinesiology will see in jargon-free language how all the different areas of study and professional practice fit into the larger scope of kinesiology, how all the SUb-fields contribute to the larger field and what job prospects exist in the various kinesiology areas. Chapters are designed not to give a mini-course in a sub-area, but rather to review the basic questions and issues that sub-areas deals with, how it compares to other sub-areas and most importantly, get students prepared for advanced study.
