Although there is growing interest from governments in participation levels in sport, the extent to which governments actively promote ‘sport for all’ and their motives for doing so vary greatly. This is the first book to examine the sport participation policies of national governments across the world and to offer a comparative analysis of the motives for, and successes and failures of those policies. Organized around a series of sixteen national case studies, including the UK, the US, Australia, China and India, the book enables students and practitioners to compare and contrast the development, implementation and impact of sport participation policies throughout the world. An introductory chapter provides a framework for understanding and interpreting those case studies and each chapter then addresses the following key themes: national structures for sport national sporting cultures participation levels in organized sport the nature and extent of government intervention implementation of governmental policy the impact of government policy. With contributions from many of the world’s leading experts on sport policy and sport development, this book is essential reading for anybody with an interest in the role of governments in relation to supporting and regulating their citizens’ involvement in sport.

Der Kalte Krieg ist seit über zwanzig Jahren vorbei, doch das postsowjetische Russland sucht noch immer nach einer neuen Identität. Während man im Westen nach wie vor von der Gorbatschow-Zeit schwärmt, will man sie in Russland am liebsten vergessen. Inzwischen gilt Stalin dort vielen, auch unter den Jüngeren, wieder als großer Staatsmann, wie überhaupt die sozialistische Vergangenheit immer öfter nostalgisch verklärt wird. Für Swetlana Alexijewitsch leben die Russen gleichsam in einer Zeit des "secondhand", der gebrauchten Ideen und Worte. Wie ein vielstimmiger Chor erzählen die Menschen in ihrem neuen Buch von der radikalen gesellschaftlichen Umwälzung in den zurückliegenden Jahren.

In einer Kleinstadt nahe Boston, dort, wo wohlhabende Bürger einmal ihre Sommermonate verbracht haben, begegnen sich drei Menschen, die so gar nicht zueinander passen: Charlotte, eine gebildete alte Dame aus der ehemals besseren Gesellschaft, Doug, der Emporkömmling, der sich selbst und der Union Atlantic Bank mit waghalsigen Spekulationen Millionen verschafft, um Milliarden zu verlieren, und der junge Nate, der in diesem Sommer kaum noch Gründe findet, je wieder nüchtern zu sein. Drei Generationen, die sich streiten, sich verlieben und fast ruinieren, die komische und tragische Konflikte austragen. Und dann sind da noch Sam und Wilkie, Charlottes Hunde, mit denen sie immerzu spricht – und beide antworten. Adam Haslett verbindet die Lebenslügen und -geheimnisse seiner Helden mit den Ereignissen der jüngsten amerikanischen Geschichte. «Union Atlantic» ist das Buch der Stunde: ein hellsichtiger, kluger und zutiefst menschlicher Roman über Krieg und Krise, Gewinn und Verlust. «Dieser Roman ist ein seltener Glücksfall. Er ist authentisch und von bezwingender Aktualität. Adam Haslett hat sie vorausgesehen: diese besondere Situation, diese besondere Krise. Und weil er unseren Politikern, unseren Meinungsmachern so weit voraus war – so weit voraus, wie es nur ein wahrhaftiger Autor sein kann –, ist es ihm gelungen, ein Buch von unvergleichlicher Reife und Vollständigkeit, voll Mitgefühl, Spannung und Humor zu schreiben. Es ist lange her, dass ein amerikanischer Romancier so viel gewagt und von dem, was er sich vorgenommen hat, so viel erreicht hat.» Jonathan Franzen

Handelt es sich im Fall des Leistungssports und des Dopings um eine antagonistische Symbiose, in der man -nicht miteinander und nicht ohneeinander- kann? Der moderne, zum Zweck der Einkommenserzielung betriebene Spitzensport war wahrscheinlich von Beginn an bis heute von Doping begleitet. In verschiedenen Beitragen wird das Phanomen -Doping im Spitzensport- aus der Perspektive der Soziologie, der Okonomie, der Rechtswissenschaft und der Anthropologie beleuchtet. Dabei zeigt sich, dass unterschiedliche Rahmenbedingungen und soziale Prozesse in ihrer wechselseitigen Verschrankung dieses vielfach als Problem wahrgenommene Phanomen erst ermoglichen. Verschiedenen rationalen individuellen und korporativen Akteuren gelingt es dabei, an seinem Bestehen zu partizipieren und daraus Nutzen zu ziehen."
