Book Summary

Sports Psychology is considered an important component of Sports Sciences. It has become a scientific study of the sports-persons not only in the competitive settings, but also during their training period. Sports psychologists are investigating into several dimensions relating the intricate relationship between competitive sports and personality or psychological make up the sports persons. They are asking several questions in order to arrive at acceptable conclusions. These are: what are the underlying psych-ological dimensions of outstanding sports performance? Is personality amenable to change due to sports? Does sports environment affect personality and personality development? Or does the interaction of the personality traits with the sports specific situations determine sports performance and sports specific behaviour? Sports psychologists have postulated several theoretical perspectives to answer these questions and researchers are trying to validate such postulations through empirical studies world over.

The present book tries to synthesise the empirical findings by a group of research scholars engaged in the scientific enquiry relating to the aforementioned questions. The book contains the summary of their research contained in their respective PhD theses submitted to Punjabi University, Patiala. Most of the research scholars have taken assistance of the Netaji Subhas Institute of Sports, Patiala. 

It is hoped that this book would be quite useful to the future research scholars who are pursuing their researches in the area of Sports Sciences, Physical Education and Sports Psychology. This book is dedicated to the new generation of researchers.
