The Female Tradition in Physical Education: Women First reconsidered

The Female Tradition in Physical Education: Women First reconsidered by David Kirk

The Female Tradition in Physical Education re-examines a key question in the history of modern education: why did the remarkably successful leaders of female physical education, who pioneered the development of the subject in late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century England, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, lose control in the years following the Second World War? Despite the later resurgence of second wave feminism they never regained a voice, with the result that male leadership was able to shift the curriculum in ways that neglected the needs and interests of girls and young women....

Managing Sport Development: An international approach

Managing Sport Development: An international approach by Emma Sherry

Sport development has become a significant part of the international sport industry. The development of sport (creating pathways for participation and talent development) and sport for development (using sport as a tool to achieve outcomes beyond sport) are now fundamental aspects of the organisation and governance of sport around the world. Consequently, any manager working in sport today needs to understand what sport development is and how sport development programs can be managed, implemented and evaluated. This is the first undergraduate textbook to offer a complete introduction to sport...

Sport and Alcohol: An ethical perspective

Sport and Alcohol: An ethical perspective by Carwyn Rh. Jones

There is a clear sense in which sport has played, and continues to play an important role in the normalization and legitimization of routine, excessive and problem drinking; sport and alcohol have become inextricably linked. Alcohol companies provide funding in the form of sponsorship, fans consume alcohol when watching, and players celebrate, bond and relax with alcohol. Sport and Alcohol: an ethical perspective aims to critically examine the various ways in which sport and alcohol interact.?

In doing so, the book casts an ethical eye over the following topics:

  • Society's relationship with alcohol...

Out in Sport: The experiences of openly gay and lesbian athletes in competitive sport

Out in Sport: The experiences of openly gay and lesbian athletes in competitive sport by Eric Anderson & Rory Magrath & Rachael Bullingham

Research has shown that since the turn of the millennia, matters have rapidly improved for gays and lesbians in sport. Where gay and lesbian athletes were merely tolerated a decade ago, today they are celebrated.

This book represents the most comprehensive examination of the experiences of gays and lesbians in sport ever produced. Drawing on interviews with openly gay and lesbian athletes in the US and the UK, as well as media accounts, the book examines the experiences of 'out' men and women, at recreational, high school, university and professional levels, in addition to those competing in...

A Short History On the Superbowl

A Short History On the Superbowl by Scott CastersonSurprising, the super bowl never started out as the big league we adore so much today. In fact, it wasn't even called the Super Bowl; it was previously known as the AFL-NFL World championship game. Not much effort was put into these games as they would be hastily put together for a half-filled stadium in Los Angeles, in the early 1960's.

There is an abundance of literature on the pleasure and wonder of fly fishing.

The President of Williams College faces a firestorm for not allowing the women's lacrosse team to postpone exams to attend the playoffs. The University of Michigan loses $2.8 million on athletics despite averaging 110,000 fans at each home football game.

Warnings against Myself: Meditations on a Life in Climbing

Warnings against Myself: Meditations on a Life in Climbing by David StevensonFrom his youthful second ascent of the north ridge of Mount Kennedy in the Yukon??s Saint Elias Range, an in-and-out on skis for which he had not entirely learned how to ski, to a recent excursion across the Harding Icefield conceived under the influence of rain and whiskey, David Stevenson chronicles several decades of a life unified by a preoccupation with climbing. Reflective and literary, and also entertaining and funny, his accounts move across the great climbing locations of the western United States, with forays into the spires of the Alps, and slip freely in time from the author??s childhood,...

'Cultural Life', Disability, Inclusion and Citizenship: Moving Beyond Leisure in Isolation

'Cultural Life', Disability, Inclusion and Citizenship: Moving Beyond Leisure in Isolation by Simon Darcy

Disability is a complex multidimensional social construct where the type of disability and the level of support of individuals needs to be considered within leisure provision. In a leisure context, people with a disability often face a multitude of constraints to participation. However, when leisure is possible, the benefits are substantial and worth pursuing. While other marginalised populations have received a great deal of attention across disciplines and in the field of leisure and recreation, disability has received comparatively less attention and generally in isolation to the leisure...

Gender Testing in Sport: Ethics, cases and controversies

After the young South African athlete Caster Semenya won the 800m title at the 2009 World Championships she was obliged to undergo gender testing and was temporarily withdrawn from international competition.

This is the first book to explore the case in depth, from socio-cultural, ethical and legal perspectives.

Analysing what came to be called "the Caster Semenya Case" in a comprehensive and multi-disciplinary...
