    A good edited collection on sport and politics, albeit with a US focus

    The essays collected in Daniel A. Grano & Michael L. Butterworth’s Sport, Rhetoric and Political Struggle contextualize sport and political struggle, examine the mobilization of resistance in sporting contexts, and identify ongoing stigmas that present limitations in and around sport. Judging by Alan Bairner’s review, a more proper title for the book would have been “Sport, Rhetoric and Political Struggle in the US”. Still, our reviewer concludes that the book deserves a wide readership among scholars with an interest in sport and politics.

    Competent and comprehensive handbook charts the new sport media landscape

    Under the editorship of Andrew C. Billings & Marie Hardin, 53 contributors have collaborated to produce 31 chapters over 374 pages for the Routledge Handbook of Sport and New Media. Our reviewer is Britt-Marie Ringfjord, and she finds that the collection has aged well, being originally published in 2014, an is to this day a valuable tool for sport media scholars and students alike.
