Annals of Leisure Research, Volume 23, 2020, Issue 2 | Nature sports, Part 2: Current trends and the path
ALR is aimed at an international readership and seeks theoretical or applied articles which cover any topic within the broad area of leisure studies. Editor’s pick from the current issue: ‘I DON’T WANT TO DIE. THAT’S NOT WHY I DO IT AT ALL’: MULTIFACETED MOTIVATION, PSYCHOLOGICAL HEALTH, AND PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT IN BASE JUMPING by John H. Kerr & Susan Houge Mackenzie.
The International Review for the Sociology of Sport is a peer reviewed academic journal. Its main purpose is to disseminate research and scholarship on sport throughout the international academic community. The journal publishes research articles of varying lengths, from standard length research papers to shorter reports and commentary, as well as book and media reviews.
“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.
