Overview

The 3 volume Encyclopedia of International Sports Studies provides comprehensive coverage of all aspects of the science, social science and medicine of sport.

The Encyclopedia is alphabetically organised and consists of:

  • principal entries of 3000 words covering disciplinary areas, e.g. sports economics, sports history
  • large informational entries of 1200 words on broad topics, e.g. resistance training, diagnosis of sports injuries
  • medium informational entries of 600 words on more specific topics, e.g. cross training, projectile motion
  • small entries of 300 words comprising entries on narrower topics and small overviews directing the reader onwards, e.g. metabolism, overview, motivation, overview, muscle tension length relationship.

The aim of the editors has been to produce a comprehensive work which will be of use to a wide variety of users: students, teachers, researchers, and professionals (coaches, development officers, physiotherapists, etc.). Entries are accessibly written and both facts-fronted and critical.

Entries carry cross-references and lists of further reading. There is a full index.
