    The modern ski resort – from exclusive jet set playground to white middle-class paradise

    For a sports historian with a strong personal as well as scholarly partiality for skiing, it was to be expected that our reviewer Leif Yttergren would find much to like in Philipp Strobl & Aneta Podkalicka’s edited volume Leisure Cultures and the Making of Modern Ski Resorts (Palgrave Macmillan). Described by Yttergren as human geography with a (technology-) historical focus, the book is exciting and commendable as well as inspiring for future studies in the Swedish context.
