International Studies in Sport and Society is a peer-reviewed book series that investigates the relationship between sport and society. In today’s modern world, with its ethnically and culturally diverse populations, the role of sport as a vehicle for cultural dialogue is of particular interest. Due to the growing importance of sport, the exploration of its sociocultural, sociopolitical, and socioeconomic functions is becoming an increasingly essential task for the sociology of sport. In this context, a new scientific orientation has evolved, accompanied by new perspectives for research activities concerning the development of sport over time and its differentiation across different societies. The cooperation between international scholars in the framework of the series has an identity-forming potential for the sociology of sport. The scientists involved in the series, consisting not only of sport sociologists but also experts from the neighbor disciplines of general sociology, psychology, anthropology, and economy, contribute to building international networks in the forefront of the sociology of sport, so that both the circulation of knowledge and future research collaborations become possible. Against this background, International Studies in Sport and Society aims to illustrate sport sociological topics, theories, and research findings to readers around the world.

International Studies in Sport and Society has value primarily for researchers, educators, and students active in sociology and various adjacent fields concerned with sport, to include but not limited to education, governance, and the natural sciences, as well as for representatives of sport organizations, policy makers, and sport industry professionals.

The sociology of sport is a relatively new scientific discipline, which has spread rapidly and developed in different directions across the world. It investigates social behavior, social processes, and social structures in sport, as well as the relationship between sport and society. The book Introduction to the Sociology of Sport aims to give its readers a comprehensive overview of this fascinating topic. For this purpose, it shows the interrelations between sport and identity, social class, gender, socialization, social groups, (mass) communication, the economy, and politics. In addition, the book introduces a new, innovative theory that helps readers understand the social specificity and worldwide popularity of sport.
Festschrift zum 65. Geburtstag von Heribert Hallermann
Die Frage des Verhältnisses von II. Vatikanischem Konzil und dem geltenden Kirchenrecht und damit verbunden die Frage nach der Rezeption des II. Vatikanischen Konzils in der geltenden Rechtsordnung, das Verhältnis von Staat und Religion in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland und ihr Religionsrecht sowie weitere theologische Brückenschläge von und zum Kirchenrecht stehen im Zentrum dieses Bandes. Diese Themen zeichnen auch die entscheidenden Weglinien der kirchen- und religionsrechtlichen Forschung von Heribert Hal-lermann nach. Dieser Band ehrt daher den Würzburger Kirchenrechtler zu seinem 65. Geburtstag und hebt in sei-nem Titel das Hauptanliegen seiner Forschung und seiner Lehre hervor, das Kirchenrecht als hilfreiches pastorales In-strument innerhalb des Volkes Gottes auszuweisen.
