Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Ideal overview of sport history, sociology, sport development and key agencies in an engaging and easy to read format!" (Senior Lecturer, University of Cumbria.)
Owe Stråhlman
Here, the author admirably, creatively, and generously shares her knowledge and tips... Exemplary, also, are the discussions about how to link knowledge in sport to a kind of employability. This discussion is motivated by thoughts that most students ponder concerning how to get a job in their field of study.
