    Important and refreshing insights into the digitalization of sport and leisure

    In their anthology Re-thinking Leisure in a Digital Age (Routledge), editors Michael Silk, Brad Millington, Emma Rich and Anthony Bush set themselves the task of providing critical engagement with digital technologies in a sport and leisure context.

    Nyttigt og nødvendigt perspektiv

    Lite har skrivits om den roll amerikansk idrott spelade efter 9/11 innan Michael Silk skrev sin bok The Cultural Politics of Post-9/11 American Sport: Power, Pedagogy and the Popular (Routledge).
