Movement is a fundamental characteristic of life. Understanding the meaning of movement in the full context
of human endeavor is central to improving the quality of human experience, of life itself. Fundamentals of
Kinesiology showcases the transdisciplinary nature of the academic field of study centered on movement,
physical activity and sport. Three major sections of the book provide a comprehensive treatment of this diverse
academic field through detailed studies of the many disciplines and professions constituting kinesiology.
In Part I of the text, kinesiology is explored from historical/cultural and professional standpoints. The chapters
of Part Two then provide descriptions of each of the major disciplines of kinesiology. Here students are
introduced to the foundational sciences comprising each discipline. This part serves as a lead up to Part
Three of the text which focuses on the professions centering on the practice of movement, physical activity,
sport and exercise.
Chapter 24 wraps up the text with a discussion of where kinesiology might be headed in the not too distant
future. The text serves academic courses designed to introduce students of kinesiology, exercise science,
sport studies, physical education, or whatever moniker is in current vogue in colleges and universities.
