|"This collection is timely and unique - an outstanding example of what it means to do critical youth studies in the current historical moment. In this first-rate collection the authors have thoughtfully bridged key theoretical perspectives on culture and politics with an impressive range of topics on youth and sport. Youth Culture and Sport is a must-read for those seeking to better understand the integral connection between youth and sporting cultures - especially students, instructors, and researchers interested in the study of media, social inequality, consumption, politics, and subcultures." --Brian Wilson, Associate Professor of Socio-Cultural Studies, School of Human Kinetics, University of British Columbia "In this intriguing volume, Youth Culture and Sport positively challenges us to rethink the identities "youth" and the cultural locations of sport in the context of contemporary neo-liberal politics and global economic relations. Giardina, Donnelly, and contributors pose significant interventions to received understandings concerning the relationship between sport and cultures of youth." --Daniel Thomas Cook, Associate Professor of Childhood Studies, Rutgers University|
