Do we need another collection of sociology of sport articles? Our reviewer thinks so.
The Oxford Handbook of Sport and Society, edited by Lawrence A, Wenner (Oxford UP), features leading international scholars’ assessments of scholarly inquiry about sport and society. Divided into six sections, chapters consider dominant issues within key areas, approaches featured in inquiry, and debates needing resolution. Our reviewer is Richards Giulianotti, who edited the Sage four volume set The Sociology of Sport in 2012, and he finds that this new collection, some unnecessary omissions notwithstanding, is a welcome addition to the existing list of handbooks in the field.
Journal for the Study of Sports and Athletes in Education, Volume 16, 2022, Issue 3
JSSAE provides a forum for discussion and analysis on the unique characteristics of sports and athletics participation in education. The Forum Editor’s pick from the current issue: Comparison of active and passive recovery using local heat in lactate removal in cyclists by Iván L. Duque-Vera, Isabella Ma. Urrutia-Illera & Blanca I. Ramírez-Forero.
Sport in Society, Volume 25, 2022, Issue 8
Academics in various disciplines are writing about sport. Sport in Society is a multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary forum for academics to discuss the growing relationship of sport to significant areas of modern life. The Forum Editor’s pick from the current issue: Where do they all come from? Youth, fitness gyms, sport clubs and social inequality by Mads Skauge & Ørnulf Seippel.
An introduction to the negative aspects of sport
This Advanced Introduction to the Sociology of Sport, claims the publisher (Edward Elgar Publishing), highlights the relationship between sport and violence, brain injury, social class, sexual minorities, gender, and race. That's fine with our reviewer, Alan Bairner, but Eric Anderson’s and Rory Magrath’s effort does not, according to Professor Bairner, qualify as an introduction, advanced or otherwise, to the sociology of sport.

The Forum Editor’s pick from the current issue: “Just Existing Is Activism”: Transgender Experiences in Martial Arts by Anna Kavoura, Alex Channon, Marja Kokkonen.

Overwhelming praise for comprehensive and thought-provoking handbook
Originally published in 2014 and edited by Jennifer Hargreaves and Eric Anderson, the Routledge Handbook of Sport, Gender and Sexuality comprises 53 chapters penned by 68 internationally renowned sport scholars. According to our reviewer Benjamin Moreland, this perennial handbook is a vital contribution to the academic conversations surrounding gender and sexuality and a foundational read for scholars and students alike.
Frågor om kön, kropp och makt inte fullt ut besvarade i bok om transpersoner inom tävlingsidrotten
Om transgenderister inom tävlingsidrotten handlar Eric Andersons och Ann Travers antologi Transgender Athletes in Competitive Sport (Routledge). Jesper Fundberg för i sin recension flera spännande resonemang, till exempel om att förflyttningen över könsgränser snarare upprätthåller än bryter den binära könsuppdelningen. Dessutom saknar han i boken maktanalysen kring kön och kropp.
Brilliant introduction to a critical sociology of sport
Eric Anderson’s successful 2010 book Sport, Theory and Social Problems: A Critical Introduction has evolved into a revised and enlarged second edition, co-authored with Adam White (Routledge). While regretting a rather narrow perspective in the application of the profusion of sociological theories in the book, our reviewer Anne Tjønndal is none the less both impressed and ensorcelled.
