    The impact of Covid-19 on sport – challenges, changes and lessons learned

    Andrew C. Billings, Lawrence A, Wenner & Marie Hardin’s edited collection American Sport in the Shadow of a Pandemic: Communicative Insights (Peter Lang Publishing) focuses on how communication practices, structures, and principles change when a key locus – sport – has much of its cultural and political-economic power disrupted.

    Do we need another collection of sociology of sport articles? Our reviewer thinks so.

    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.

    The essays collected in Daniel A. Grano & Michael L.

Still, our reviewer concludes that the book deserves a wide readership among scholars with an interest in sport and politics.

    Leading sport and media scholars unearth the mediatization of sport mega-events

    Lawrence A. Wenner and Andrew C. Billings have gathered leading scholars in the field of sport media studies for their edited volume Sport, Media and Mega-Events (Routledge), in which each contribution takes stock of a mega-event in terms of the level of mediatization. Henk Erik Meier is our knowledgeable reviewer, and he’s impressed.
