“Both books are welcome in the field of equestrian studies and constitute significant contributions to the field”
Susanna Hedenborg reviews and appreciates two new books that deal with equestrianism, differently and yet similarly, Equestrian Cultures in Global and Local Contexts by Miriam Adelman & Kirrilly Thompson, eds., (Springer), and Women, Horseracing and Gender: Becoming ‘One of the Lads’ by Deborah Butler (Routledge).
The purpose of the Sociology of Sport Journal is to stimulate and communicate research, critical thought, and theory development on issues pertaining to the sociology of sport. The journal publishes peer-reviewed empirical, theoretical, and position papers; book reviews; and critical essays.
The anthology Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in Sport and Leisure, edited by Katherine Dashper and Thomas Fletcher, argues that modern sport remains a site of exclusionary practices that operate on a number of levels. Our reviewer is Anne Tjønndal.
