Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'As the editor of this ambitious collection, Fuller has carved out a unique niche. The three topics of sports, gender, and rhetoric are each individually broad fields of study now and, by combining them, this work will to touch a nerve with many people. This book is interesting, original, and insightful.' - Michael Real, Royal Roads University, Canada

'This informative, captivating collection of extremely well-written essays cover a wide variety of topics...A wonderful resource for those interested in women's studies, women and sport and sports sociology.' - Choice

'...a convincing and important collection which adds a great deal to our understanding of how our self-image and our image of others is shaped by the pervasive discourse of sports language. Models of leadership, team work, and strategies for meeting objectives in the workplace and in our homes are all - this book argues persuasively - in some way shaped by the discourse of sports.' - Media Development
