The encyclopedia is alphabetically organized and consists of:

  • principal articles covering key disciplinary areas, such as sports economics and sports history
  • large topical entries on central subjects such as resistance training and the diagnosis of sports injuries
  • smaller topical entries on subjects such as cross training and projectile motion
  • short overviews of other important terms and concepts, from metabolism and motivation to muscle tension-length relationship.

With over 150 contributing authors from the US, UK, Canada, Australia, South Africa, Japan, New Zealand, Hong Kong and continental Europe, the Encyclopedia of International Sports Studies is an unparalleled work of sports scholarship. Accessibly written, facts-fronted and including full cross-referencing and guides to further reading throughout, this is an essential addition to the bookshelf of any student, researcher, teacher or professional working in sport.
