Product description


"Esports is a field that is emerging rapidly in schools, communities, industry, and educational research, and may well become a crucial new source of modern learning for collaboration and technology.  This book is an excellent user manual for an exciting ride into uncharted territory." James Paul Gee, Arizona State University

Product Description

Understanding Esports: An Introduction to the Global Phenomenon places professional Esports, a rapidly growing industry, in both the cultural and athletic landscape. This book explores how the rise of professional gaming has shaped—and been shaped by—media trends, interpersonal communication, and what it means to be classified as an athlete. Ryan Rogers has assembled contributors from a variety of backgrounds and experiences in order to provide a broad view of the history, experience, and impact of professional gaming. Scholars of media studies, communication, sports, and cultural studies will find this book especially useful.
