The considerable growth of interest in commerce, media and politics and their relationship to sport has resulted in academics in various disciplines writing about sport. Sport in Society is a 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: CHINESE FOOTBALL FANDOM AND CIVIC IDENTITIES: A STUDY OF THE FANS OF SHANGHAI SHENHUA AND BEIJING GUOAN by Kaixiao Jiang & Alan Bairner.
In Jörg Krieger’s and Stephan Wassong’s edited collection Dark Sides of Sport (Common Ground), leading international scholars explore multifaceted historical and contemporary challenges for sport. We asked Mark Brooke at the National University of Singapore for a review. Our reviewer is very appreciative of the book; it fills a void in the existing academic literature as it explores, in one book, various areas of deviance that pose a threat to sport.
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. 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.
Idrott är i huvudsak en lokal företeelse, om än på ganska skilda nivåer. Platsen är viktig, och därmed geografiska aspekter av idrottsutövning. Detta behandlas i antologin Critical Geographies of Sport: Space, power and sport in global perspective sammanställd av Natalie Koch (Routledge). Karin Book är inte helt nöjd med boken.
Asia Pacific Journal of Sport and Social Science is an international peer-reviewed journal which publishes original research contributions to scientific knowledge. Articles that adopt a multi-disciplinary, inter-disciplinary or comparative approach are also welcome. Most of the articles that are published in the journal will be based on qualitative or mixed-method research. However, consideration will be given to quantitative studies which are sufficiently theorised.
In this original review for idrottsforum.org, Jay Coakley takes on two introductory textbooks in the sociology of sport, Sport Sociology by Peter Craig and Sport and Society, edited by Barrie Houlihan & Dominic Malcolm (both Sage Publications). His critical analysis from the point of view of the academic teacher leads him to a well-argued conclusions that will be rewarding reading for teachers as well as for the respective author/editors.
To Anne Tjønndal, woman and boxer, Global Perspectives on Women in Combat Sports: Women Warriors around the World, edited by Alex Channon & Christopher R. Matthews (Palgrave Macmillan), was a satisfying read – a valuable contribution to the field of gender and sports.
