In this original review for idrottsforum.org by Dominic Malcolm, Peter Krustrup’s long-awaited summing-up of 17 years of research around the health benefits of football, Football as Medicine: Prescribing Football for Global Health Promotion, edited with Daniel Parnell (Routledge), is critically assessed. While commending the basic premise of the book and its trust in football as medicine, he regrets the lack of critical perspectives.
The European Sport Management Quarterly (ESMQ) publishes articles that contribute to our understanding of how sport organizations are structured, managed and operated. The Journal sets out to enhance our understanding of the role of sport management and sport bodies in social life and the way social, political and economic forces and practices affect these organizations.
