For a sports historian with a strong personal as well as scholarly partiality for skiing, it was to be expected that our reviewer Leif Yttergren would find much to like in Philipp Strobl & Aneta Podkalicka’s edited volume Leisure Cultures and the Making of Modern Ski Resorts (Palgrave Macmillan). Described by Yttergren as human geography with a (technology-) historical focus, the book is exciting and commendable as well as inspiring for future studies in the Swedish context.

Sport ecology is a growing trend in the study of sport that looks beyond what’s happening on the pitch, in the rink or at the running tracks, and cares rather more about sport’s ecological footprints. A recent contribution to this emerging field is an anthology edited by Brian Wilson, and Brad Millington, Sport and the Environment: Politics and Preferred Futures (Emerald Publishing). Our reviewer is Daniel Svensson, and he finds the book to be a preferred roadmap towards a preferred future.
“I read this volume as one of many signs that sport can no longer escape issues of environmental impact, sustainability and climate change.” The volume in question is Routledge Handbook of Sport and the Environment edited by Brian P. McCullough and Timothy B. Kellison (Routledge), and the quote is from Daniel Svensson’s review in which he is mainly positive, although he also points to some perspectives that he finds missing in the book.
