This book proposes alternative ways of looking at human movement and brings into question the traditional role of the human-movement profession as an agent of social and cultural reproduction. The authors argue that the profession has traditionally shaped physical activities in schools and communities in disempowering ways and has adversely influenced how people view their bodies, apply physical activities to their lives, and use and understand the knowledge in the field. To raise awareness of the possibilities of postmodernism for human movement, the contributors employ a critical postmodern conceptualization of the profession to explore the conflicts within it; to ask what can be done to strengthen it; to investigate how professional relations and meanings can be constructed within a new realm of justice, freedom, and equity; and to discuss the professional and civic principles to which the profession should subscribe.

As an increasing amount of research on mechanical loading, exercise, and bone health becomes available, there is a growing need to synthesize and clarify the rapidly evolving information. No other resource fills this need better than the timely Physical Activity and Bone Health—the first book of its kind to examine effective exercise as it contributes to bone health. This text is written for all “students” of the human movement sciences with an interest in skeletal structure and function. It compiles a wealth of research literature—from the earliest to the most recent studies—making it a time-saving and essential resource. Physical Activity and Bone Healthwas written by six highly acclaimed authorities in the field, which adds tremendously to its value. Only in this book will you gain access to such broad and balanced perspectives and a diverse knowledge base. Emphasizing exercise and its effect on bone, the book's sections–which can be read in any order–contain current information on these topics: -Basic anatomy and physiology of the structure and function of bone -Factors other than exercise that influence bone -Exercising to maintain a healthy skeleton from childhood through old age -The role of exercise in preventing perimenopausal bone loss -Medical issues of bone deterioration -Questions that require further research In addition, one section of the book is devoted to practical exercise prescriptions for different stages of life—from childhood and adolescence to adulthood and the elderly years. The exercise prescriptions are safe and effective and can be used by professionals in physical activity, health, and bone fields as a way to optimize bone health. Physical Activity and Bone Healthis richly supported with illustrations, more than 850 references, and 20 chapters that stand alone or can be read together for a comprehensive picture. For those who wish to explore the frontiers of bone health, Physical Activity and Bone Healthis a handy and trusted guide.
