Reviews

'Sport and International Development...is a welcome addition to this developing academic area and provides an informative account illustrating the diverse ways sport is used for itnernational development'.

- International Journal of Sport Policy and Politics

'The book is interesting in its theory-based analysis of a highly practical development strand. Sport and International Development helps to look at the issue from many different angles and enables the reader to ask whether sport really is an appropriate tool for social change'

- Development in Practice

'Sport and International Development provides a solid foundation, and it is a useful tool...The collection addresses the contentious issues in the field today and offers answers to how sport can be a contributor to meaningful social change in the developing world. Because of this, the book is helpful, both to academics and practitioners, in helping to frame the way we think about sport-in-development programs through a variety of lenses.'

- Impumelelo: The Interdisciplinary Electronic Journal of African Sports
