The Oxford Handbook of Sport and Society, edited by Lawrence A, Wenner (Oxford UP), features leading international scholars’ assessments of scholarly inquiry about sport and society. Divided into six sections, chapters consider dominant issues within key areas, approaches featured in inquiry, and debates needing resolution. Our reviewer is Richards Giulianotti, who edited the Sage four volume set The Sociology of Sport in 2012, and he finds that this new collection, some unnecessary omissions notwithstanding, is a welcome addition to the existing list of handbooks in the field.
Psychology of Sport and Exercise is an international forum for scholarly reports in the psychology of sport and exercise, broadly defined. The Forum Editor’s pick from the current issue: Effects of different types of analogy instruction on the performance and inter-joint coordination of novice darts learners by Hatsuho Zeniya, Hideyuki Tanaka.
Mental health issues among elite sports performers are finally being talked about quite openly; Simone Biles and Naomi Osaka are the latest examples.

Our reviewer Frida Wågan has read an important contribution to the field.
The Journal of Applied Sport Psychology is a refereed journal designed to advance thought, theory, and research on applied aspects of sport and exercise psychology.

Vella, Alex Benson, Jordan Sutcliffe, Colin McLaren, Christian Swann, Matthew J. Schweickle, Andrew Miller & Mark Bruner.
Sport ecology is a growing trend in the study of sport that looks beyond what’s happening on the pitch, in the rink or at the running tracks, and cares rather more about sport’s ecological footprints. A recent contribution to this emerging field is an anthology edited by Brian Wilson, and Brad Millington, Sport and the Environment: Politics and Preferred Futures (Emerald Publishing). Our reviewer is Daniel Svensson, and he finds the book to be a preferred roadmap towards a preferred future.

Not a final statement but a starting point: timely and extremely useful handbook for qualitative sport studies
Just in time for the publication of Mark Brooke’s review of the Routledge Handbook of Qualitative Research in Sport and Exercise, edited by Brett Smith & Andrew C. Sparkes, Routledge chose to release the paperback edition, thereby decreasing the RRP from £190 to £40 – which is good, given that the book, according to our reviewer, is a valuable tool for social and cultural science scholars in the field of sport and exercise.
