Now available in paperback, this vital handbook marks the development of sports studies as a major new discipline within the social sciences. Edited by the leading sociologist of sport, Eric Dunning, and Jay Coakley, author of the best selling textbook on sport in the USA, it both reflects and richly endorses this new found status. Key aspects of the Handbook include: an inventory of the principal achievements in the field; a guide to the chief conflicts and difficulties in the theory and research process; a rallying point for researchers who are established or new to the field, which sets the agenda for future developments; a resource book for teachers who wish to establish new curricula and develop courses and programmes in the area of sports studies. With an international and inter-disciplinary team of contributors the Handbook of Sports Studies is comprehensive in scope, relevant in content and far-reaching in its discussion of future prospect.

This collection of essays provides an insight into the status of feminist positions among female Spanish scholars. The focus is placed on the social and political achievements that feminism has attained since the transition to democracy in Spain. It gives an outline of the radical changes in the image of women. Above all, however, this reader illustrates the extent of academic research on feminist issues which has developed and become increasingly differentiated over the past 30 years. The book is a dramatic example of the explosive development of feminism and the new status of women in Spain.

"With an eye to the rather insular, particular development and definition of feminism in Spain, the author recognizes that the twentieth century has been a period of great change for peninsular women authors. Her study of the creative compromises wrought by severe oppression followed by relative liberation, all within the context of Spain's specific religious and regional influences, illustrates the unique positioning of these women writers as shown through their female characters. While this is reflection of the current scholarship in Women's Studies (examining the feminist resonance of the construction of female identity through texts written by women about women), it is one that is in its first stages of development in Spanish criticism and has been primarily author-specific. Ellen C. Mayock's research provides a more panoramic view, so to speak, facilitating an overview of progression between trends, as opposed to a singular progression of a single author within the context of era- a very positive move that allows for full comprehension."--BOOK JACKET.

Desde finales de los 80 venimos asistiendo a una eclosión de trabajos sobre historia de las mujeres que han posibilitado construir un relato nuevo sobre nuestro pasado. En esta «Historia de las mujeres en España y América Latina» más de un centenar de historiadores han aunado esfuerzos para hablarnos de las mujeres, de sus vidas cotidianas, de sus trabajos, de sus formas de religiosidad, de su escritura y su pensamiento, de su participación en la vida social y política, así como de las representaciones culturales que históricamente definen lo que denominamos femenino, en paralelo y, a menudo, en contraposición con lo masculino. Esta historia de las mujeres abarca desde la prehistoria a nuestros días, siguiendo las periodizaciones a las que estamos habituados los historiadores, pero hemos evitado caer en las férreas barreras de los períodos, dando mayor relevancia a los problemas que desbordan las cronologías clásicas y los enfoques tradicionales. En definitiva, en esta nueva historia nos preguntamos sobre el significado que determinados momentos o hechos históricos tuvieron en las vidas de las mujeres, cómo les afectaron y sobre todo cómo los vivieron.
