    An important book that addresses young people’s vulnerability in sports

    Mike Hartill’s 2017 book Sexual Abuse in Youth Sport: A socio-cultural analysis (Routledge) is, sadly, as important today as it was four or five years ago.

Östnäs recommends Hartill’s book for researchers, policy makers and practitioners in youth sports.
