En svensk ”Sport Management-kanon”
SISU Förlags ambitiösa trebandsutgåva Sport Management 1–3, under redaktion av Åsa Bäckström, Karin Book, Bo Carlsson och PG Fahlström, får genomgående positiva omdömen av idrottsforum.orgs recensenter, Søren Bennike som recenserade del 1 i oktober 2019, och Julius Z. Strömberg i föreliggande recension av delarna 2 och 3. Strömberg efterlyser visserligen ett nordiskt perspektiv men ser inte den bristen som ett hinder för att använda böckerna när han lär ut sport management på Norges idrettshøgskole.

Relevant og interessant antologi der i analysen løfter sig op på et fornemt refleksionsniveau
Det har blivit allt vanligare att se idrott som en lösning på problem som följer i spåren av segregation och ojämlikhet. I antologin Idrottens kraft? Ungas livsvillkor och ojämlikhetens problem i en segregerad stad av Magnus Dahlstedt och David Ekholm, studeras idrottens potential när det gäller att lösa sociala problem mot bakgrund av tre idrottsbaserade interventioner i en medelstor svensk stad. Jørn Hansen får en helgjuten bild av de problem som följer på en instrumentell användning av idrott som social problemlösare.
Fascinating, yet at times confusing, history and analysis of postwar FIA
A History of Organizational Change: The case of Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA), 1946–2020 by Hans Erik Næss (Palgrave Macmillan) is the first independent study of FIA’s institutional history. Our reviewer, organisation researcher Cecilia Stenling, confesses to scant knowledge about cars in general and motorsport in particular. So, she learnt a lot about the latter from Næss, but has reservations when it comes to his narrative design as well as his handling of theory.

Sport and alcohol – two popular social lubricants in a sticky relationship
Sport and alcohol go way back in sport history, hand in hand. Drink manufacturers sponsor sport, sports people drink and endorse various alcoholic beverages. Is it a sort of symbiosis? Anyway, it’s been the subject of a number of academic studies, the latest being a collected volume by Sarah Gee, Sport, Alcohol and Social Inquiry: A Global Cocktail (Emerald), which is reviewed here by Alan Bairner – and “there could have been few better choices”.
