Research Handbook on Sport and Society, edited by Elizabeth C.J. Pike (Edward Elgar), aims to provide a critical examination of the complex issues surrounding sports in contemporary societies. Our reviewer of this collection of contributions from leading sociology of sport scholars, is Alan Bairner. Although uneven, he commends the collection for its quality contributors and the editor for the clever approach of having them all describe their personal journeys into the realm of social scientific study of sport.
För att uppmärksamma och hylla Jorid Hovdens drygt trettioåriga forskargärning har ett stort antal ledande norska idrottsforskare under Anne Tjønndals ledning tillsammans fyllt en voluminös festskrift, Idrett, kjønn og ledelse: Festskrift til Jorid Hovden (Fagbokforlaget) med 18 innehållsrika kapitel. Leah Monsees hyllar i sin tur Anne Tjønndals redaktörsgärning, och hon finner mycket i de olika bidragen att ta lärdom av för sitt eget pågående avhandlingsprojekt.
The considerable growth of interest in commerce, media and politics and their relationship to sport in international academia has resulted in academics in various disciplines writing about sport.

Harry Edwards looks back and forward in this anniversary edition of his classic study The Revolt of the Black Athlete (University of Illinois Press).

Pam Sailors finds a useful metaphor in the Swiss army knife when reviewing Ethics and Governance in Sport: The future of sport imagined, edited by Yves Vanden Auweele, Elaine Cook & Jim Parry (Routledge) – both are brilliantly designed, with many small and useful implements/chapters, but one requires sturdier stuff in order to construct big houses or conceive and conduct in-depth studies of sports.
Tre professorer inom norsk idrottsforskning, Ørnulf Seippel, Mari Kristin Sisjord och Åse Strandbu, står bakom den omfångsrika antologin Ungdom og idrett (Cappelen Damm Akademisk). Vi bad en svensk forskare med ett brinnande intresse för barn- och ungdomsidrott, Karin Redelius, att recensera boken, och vi fick en bred och kunnig översikt av en uppenbart bra och viktig bok.
Daniel Svensson has read Utafor sporet? Idrett, identiteter og regionalisme i nord [Off the beaten track: Sports, identity and regionalism in the north] (Oplandske Bokforlag), an anthology edited by Helge Chr. Pedersen och Eivind Å. Skille. Our reviewer is mostly content, but would have liked further comparative efforts.
