IRSS is a peer reviewed academic journal. Its main purpose is to disseminate research and scholarship on sport throughout the international academic community. The journal publishes research articles of varying lengths, as well as book and media reviews. The Forum Editor’s pick from the current issue: Rising to the Gender Challenge in Scotland: Women's Embodiment of the Disposition to be Mountaineers by Emmanuelle Tulle (open access).
In an edited volume by Danyel Reiche & Tamir Sorek, Sport. Politics, and Society in the Middle East (Hurst Publishers), ten contributors in as many chapters discuss the intersection of political and cultural processes related to sport in the region. Dan-Erik Andersson is pleased to find a book that shares his views on the role of sport in society, although he would have liked to see a commonality in the contributions beyond geographic locality.
In his knowledgeable review of A Companion to Sport, edited by David L. Andrews and Ben Carrington, Alan Bairner, Professor of Sport and Social Theory at Loughborough University, finds that the volume offers something for everybody, if not everything for all.
