Marginalized in sport science research, but prevalent in sports itself – this book brings queer issues to the fore

More knowledge is needed, and now provided in the form of Vikki Kranes edited volume Sex, Gender, and Sexuality in Sport: Queer Inquiries (Routledge). It is reviewed here by our critique débutant Anna Adlwarth, and she finds much in this anthology to amend the paucity of theory and research in this field.
As the editors of No Slam Dunk: Gender, Sport, and the Unevenness of Social Change (Rutgers UP), Cheryl Cooky and Mike Messner has collected articles from the last few years by themselves alone or with others on the subject of gender and sport. Alan Bairner expected “an original and possibly highly innovative contribution", but finds solace in the availability of good, albeit oldish, articles in a single volume.
