JSSAE provides a forum for discussion and analysis on the unique characteristics of sports and athletics participation in education.

Urrutia-Illera & Blanca I. Ramírez-Forero.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
For her edited volume Contemporary Issues in Sport Management: A Critical Introduction (Sage Publications), Terri Byers have engaged a large number of contributing scholars of sport management, probing central issues in the field. Søren Bennie is our reviewer, and while pointing to a few weak points, his balanced assessment is that it’s a valuable and useful contribution to this research field.
