Abstract

When Senior Commissioning Editor, Simon Whitmore, invited us to edit this Routledge Handbook of Sport, Gender and Sexuality for the Sport and Leisure list, we grasped the opportunity to produce—in a single publication—a notable resource for academics, and an informative and interesting book for sport professionals and general readers. The result is a handbook that is wide-ranging across different historical periods, different sports, and different local and global contexts. It incorporates personal, ideological and political narratives; varied conceptual, methodological and theoretical approaches; and examples of complexities and nuanced ways of understanding the gendered and sexualized dynamics of sport.
