Anne Tjønndal reviews two books about coaching, Women in Sports Coaching by Nicole LaVoi (ed.), and Research Methods in Sports Coaching by Lee Nelson, Ryan Groom & Paul Potrac (eds.), both titles from Routledge. Notwithstanding some shortcomings in both books, she considers them useful resources for studying the vast and multifarious field of sports coaching.
The experiences of ethnic ‘Other’ females in sport is the focus of a new edited collection, Race, Gender and Sport: The Politics of Ethnic ‘Other’ Girls and Women (Routledge) by Aarti Ratna & Samaya Farooq Samie.

Our reviewer is Anna Maria Hellborg.
