Blending historical grounding and philosophical insights regarding sport and physical activity, History and Philosophy of Sport and Physical Activity covers the historical and philosophical dimensions of the study of  human movement. This cross-disciplinary text shows how theory in the  humanities can affect professional practice. 

 The author team, R.  Scott Kretchmar, Mark Dyreson, Matthew P. Llewellyn, and John Gleaves,  offers philosophical and ethical analyses alongside explorations of  changes in culture. The text follows a chronology of human movement from  our origins as hunter-gatherers to the present. The authors blend their  specific areas of expertise to present a thorough integration of  philosophy and history, capitalizing on the strengths of both  disciplines. 

History and Philosophy of Sport and Physical Activity examines sport and physical activity as a social force. Each chapter  provides a historical scaffolding that leads into philosophical  discussions about the issues raised. The content is compelling,  effective, and accessible for readers. 

 Student exercise sidebars  allow students to explore questions as they go, especially in relating  philosophical inquiry to historical events. Historical profile sidebars  throughout the chapters allow students to gain greater insight into  historical figures and events. Ancillaries include an instructor guide, a  presentation package, and a test package to help instructors make the  most of the historical, philosophical, anthropological, and sociological  issues presented in the book. 

History and Philosophy of Sport and Physical Activity is designed to reduce any gap that might exist between good ideas and  sound professional behavior. Historical lessons and philosophical  analyses are seamlessly integrated. 

 Readers will understand the  intersection of history, culture, ideals, ethics, and professional  practice from sport’s leading philosophers and historians.
