Genevieve Rail is Associate Professor, School of Human Kinetics, University of Ottawa, and editor of AVANTE.Review:
“...a vital read for those interested in contemporary developments concerning social inequality and sport.” ― The International Journal of the History of Sport
“...a timely addition, providing one of the first books to bring postmodernist perspectives to the realm of sport ... This anthology will be an important addition to the burgeoning postmodernist discussions and debates on sport, physical culture and leisure and will be particularly useful for scholars/students taking up postmodern methodologies.” ― Culture, Sport, Society
“This will be a trend-setting book. The topic redefines the sociology of sport and gives a feeling that one is engaging an important moment in the field. It is a stunning accomplishment―the sociology of sport comes of age with this collection.” ― Norman K. Denzin, University of Illinois at Urbana
“This volume challenges the status quo in sport sociology in a meaningful way. Those who read it will find an extraordinary collection of vibrant essays whose point is to stretch the limits of our understanding. In a sense, this volume is the first journey in the sport sociology Star Trek, taking us where no one has gone before.” ― Stephen D. Mosher, Ithaca College
“For those interested in seeing how postmodern approaches enable scholars to understand social worlds, and especially sports, in new ways, this book is valuable.” ― Jay Coakley, University of Colorado at Colorado Springs
