At the intersection of sociology, sport and society: a summary of the Norwegian Journal of Sociology’s special issue on Sport

Anne Tjønndal reviews the special issue of the Norwegian sociological journal on ‘Sport’ published on the occasion of ISSA’s 50th anniversary. In her meritorious presentation of the issue, Anne gives prominence to two articles that in different ways take ah holistic approach to the changing conditions of sport, health and physical activity in Norwegian society.

An interesting and much-needed book that could have done better

Innovation and entrepreneurship, social or not, in a sports setting is a new field within sport studies. Vanessa Ratten & João J. Ferreira’s edited volume Sport Entrepreneurship and Innovation (Routledge 2017) can possibly claim the spot of key text in this unplowed field, but according to our reviewer, Daniel Bjärsholm, its shortcomings may well prevent that.
