    The most thorough and well-researched biography of Stella Walsh to date

    Polish-born American athlete Stella Walsh dominated women’s track and field in the 1930s and 40s. In a new biography, The Forgotten Legacy of Stella Walsh (Rowman & Littlefield), Sheldon Anderson argues that she should be remembered as the greatest female athlete of her generation. Our reviewer is Sarah Teetzel, and she is appreciative of Anderson’s balanced account of the controversies surrounding Walshes’ legacy.

    Frågor om kön, kropp och makt inte fullt ut besvarade i bok om transpersoner inom tävlingsidrotten

    Om transgenderister inom tävlingsidrotten handlar Eric Andersons och Ann Travers antologi Transgender Athletes in Competitive Sport (Routledge). Jesper Fundberg för i sin recension flera spännande resonemang, till exempel om att förflyttningen över könsgränser snarare upprätthåller än bryter den binära könsuppdelningen. Dessutom saknar han i boken maktanalysen kring kön och kropp.

    Två antologier om dopning och anti-dopningsarbete – från tidskriftsnummer till böcker

    Björn Sandahl har läst två Routledge-antologier, A Global History of Doping in Sport: Drugs, Policy, and Politics av John Gleaves & Thomas M. Hunt (red) och Anti-doping: Policy and Governance av Barrie Houlihan & Mike McNamee (red). En del bra bidrag, tycker vår recensent, men varför har dessa två gamla tidskriftsnummer publicerats som böcker, rakt av?
