Every struggle for equality between men and women is hard fought, and at best ends with a victory hard-won. That this is true also in sports is amply demonstrated in Ellen Staurowsky’s edited volume Women and Sport: Continuing a Journey of Liberation and Celebration (Human Kinetics). Our reviewer is Anna Maria Hellborg.
Andreas Stenling har read the Routledge International Handbook of Sport Psychology, edited by Robert J. Schinke, Kerry R. McGannon and Brett Smith (Routledge).
