Examining Sport Histories: Power, Paradigms, and Reflexivity explores the ways in which postmodernist and poststructural approaches can enrich the study of the sporting past. Throughout the chapters, the internationally respected authors draw from their own vast experiences within the study of sport history to collectively promote postmodernism and poststructuralism as forms of social theory that can guide the future of sport historical research. Edited by Richard Pringle and Murray Phillips, Examining Sport Histories demonstrates how sport studies scholars might be more adventurous in their thinking, research, and writing.
