Book Reviews

Sport and Sustainable Development: An Introduction, by Stavros Triantafyllidis & Cheryl Mallen (eds.)

Sport has the potential to be a powerful platform for positive change. Sport and Sustainable Development: An Introduction, edited by Stavros Triantafyllidis & Cheryl Mallen (Routledge) examines how sport can be made more sustainable and how sport can achieve more comprehensive social and ecological objectives. Our reviewer is Daniel Svensson, and he identifies an ongoing environmental turn in sports studies, evidenced by a growing body of literature into which this pedagogical textbook fits nicely. (Review in English, published 221018.)

The Circus is in Town: Sport, Celebrity, and Spectacle, by Lisa Doris Alexander & Joel Nathan Rosen (eds.)

Written by a range of scholarly contributors from multiple disciplines, The Circus Is in Town: Sport, Celebrity, and Spectacle (University Press of Mississippi) contains careful analyses of such megastars as Tiger Woods, Tonya Harding, David Beckham, Shaquille O’Neal, Maria Sharapova, and Colin Kaepernick. Steph Doehler’s review reveals an entertaining book of great academic value for those interested in sport sociology, and sport communication and journalism. (Review in English, published 221020.)

Theoretically, he is interested in context, model building and conceptual history. (221023)
