    Qualitative Research in Sport, Exercise and Health, Volume 13, 2021, Issue 5

    Qualitative Research in Sport, Exercise and Health is a landmark publication – it is the first international journal solely dedicated to the advancement and dissemination of qualitative research in the sport, exercise, and health sciences.

    Useful tool for practitioners working with athletes experiencing mental health issues

    Mental health issues among elite sports performers are finally being talked about quite openly; Simone Biles and Naomi Osaka are the latest examples. Mental illness is indeed a thorny issue, and it is being thoroughly scrutinized from the sociological perspective in Michael Atkinson’s edited volume Sport, Mental Illness, and Sociology (Emerald Publishing) by a number of leading sport sociological scholars. Our reviewer Frida Wågan has read an important contribution to the field.

    Sport in Society, Volume 23, 2020, Issue 10 | Eric Dunning: A Tribute

    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.

    Insightful, in-depth overview of the effects of neoliberalism on the governance and management of sports

    The edited volume Sport and Neoliberalism: Politics, Consumption, and Culture (Temple University Press), compiled by David L. Andrews and Michail L. Silk, takes a critical stance on neoliberalism as a dominant organizing mechanism, in society and in sports. Our reviewer Russell Holden has but few reservations to this vital and useful analysis of modern sports.

    An enjoyable, well written, and very Canadian tome on sport, politics and society

    Playing for Change: The Continuing Struggle for Sport and Recreation, edited by Russell Field (University of Toronto Press) is an homage, albeit in a very low-keyed, Canadian sort of way, to Bruce Kidd, athlete, activist and scholar. In his review for idrottsforum.org, Alan Bairner is very pleased with what he reads; however, he is unable to find in this book about struggle a discussion of gender and sexuality.
