Leisure Studies, Volume 37, 2018, Issue 6: Leisure Cultures & Glocal Challenges to National Populist Politics
Leisure Studies is the journal of the Leisure Studies Association. The emphasis of the journal is on theoretically informed critical analyses within the social sciences and humanities of the wide range of topics that constitute leisure as a subject field – including the arts, tourism, cultural, informal and virtual activities, urban and rural recreation, sport, media and physical activities.
In her new book, The Sexual and Gender Politics of Sport Mega-Events: Roving Colonialism (Routledge), Heather Sykes studies the inclusion of the LGBT movement in mega sport-events, urging the former to recognise the exclusion of others in order for these events to take place. Maria Zuiderveld’s insightful review appreciates the book’s merits, while also pointing to its weaknesses.
The purpose of the Sociology of Sport Journal is to stimulate and communicate research, critical thought, and theory development on issues pertaining to the sociology of sport. The journal publishes peer-reviewed empirical, theoretical, and position papers; book reviews; and critical essays.
