Under the editorship of Andrew C. Billings & Marie Hardin, 53 contributors have collaborated to produce 31 chapters over 374 pages for the Routledge Handbook of Sport and New Media. Our reviewer is Britt-Marie Ringfjord, and she finds that the collection has aged well, being originally published in 2014, an is to this day a valuable tool for sport media scholars and students alike.
Milena Parent and Jean-Loup Chappelet have collected 21 contributions for the Routledge Handbook of Sports Event Management, by altogether 36 scholars in the field. Our reviewer is Christian Tolstrup Jensen, and while he offers som suggestions that he feels would improve the quality of the handbook, he is nevertheless quite happy with the collection as it is.
