This book performs a vital service for critical sport scholars

“As manna from heaven”; that is one way of describing the arrival to the book stores of Sport, Protest and Globalisation: Stopping Play edited by Jon Dart and Stephen Wagg (Palgrave Macmillan). Our reviewer is Russell Holden, and besides noting a couple of omissions, he is thoroughly pleased, nay, enthusiastic over this anthology and its critical stance in relation to sports.

An enjoyable, well written, and very Canadian tome on sport, politics and society

Playing for Change: The Continuing Struggle for Sport and Recreation, edited by Russell Field (University of Toronto Press) is an homage, albeit in a very low-keyed, Canadian sort of way, to Bruce Kidd, athlete, activist and scholar. In his review for idrottsforum.org, Alan Bairner is very pleased with what he reads; however, he is unable to find in this book about struggle a discussion of gender and sexuality.
