Overview

Physical Education teaching and research is fundamental to the physical and social health of our communities. The Routledge Physical Education Reader presents an authoritative and representative selection of the very best international scholarship in PE, drawn from across the full topical range of the discipline.

Containing a rich blend of contemporary, ‘classic’ and hard-to-find articles, this book helps students gain a full understanding of the historical context in which current issues and debates within PE have emerged. Leading international scholars Richard Bailey and David Kirk weave a thoughtful editorial commentary throughout the book that illuminates each key theme, making insightful and important connections between articles and approaches. The book is divided into eight thematic sections, each of which includes an extensive guide to further reading:

  • Nature and values of physical education
  • physical education and sport
  • physical education and health
  • learners and learning
  • teachers and teaching
  • curriculum and content
  • social construction of bodies
  • researching physical education.

Addressing the most important topics in contemporary physical education, and representing a comprehensive ‘one-stop’ resource, The Routledge Physical Education Reader is essential reading for all serious students of physical education, sport, coaching, exercise and health.
