Introduction to Kinesiology Book Excerpt:

Introduction to Kinesiology: Studying Physical Activity, Fifth Edition With Web Study Guide, gives students a complete overview of the field of kinesiology and explores the common career paths, questions, and ideas that are part of this dynamic and expanding discipline. This engaging, four-color introductory text stimulates curiosity about the vast field of kinesiology, provides a foundation for students to build on through further study, and generates awareness of the long-standing and current issues that kinesiology professionals seek to understand and solve. Editors Shirl J. Hoffman and Duane V. Knudson have retained the book's strong framework and have used feedback from instructors to streamline and condense the text while adding new and updated content. The fifth edition features a completely revitalized web study guide that encourages students to apply classroom content to real-world activities and better prepare for exams. The web study guide integrates reading assignments with gradable activities so that instructors can better monitor student progress, test understanding of key concepts, and adjust classroom discussions and pace. Additional updates to this new fifth edition include the following: • Updates to data, research, and graphics to incorporate the most recent discoveries • An increased focus on public health, allied health, and nutrition and wellness to reflect changes in this dynamic and growing field • New Professional Issues in Kinesiology sidebars that look at the issues of equality, evidence-based practice, expertise, and overload as they relate to the field of kinesiology • New Kinesiology Colleagues sidebars that introduce role models who demonstrate professional life in kinesiology and its related fields The text features the three-section structure that has always been a strength of this leading introductory textbook. Part I examines the diversity of physical activity and kinesiology and summarizes the importance of knowledge gained through physical activity experiences. Part II delves into the seven major subdisciplines of kinesiology, with an overview of major historical events, research methods, professional work and application, and ideas for career advancement in each. Part III elaborates on professionalism and then examines five main areas for career opportunities. The extensive and revitalized instructor ancillaries include an instructor guide, a test package, chapter quizzes, a presentation package, and an image bank that includes most art and tables from the text. Introduction to Kinesiology provides basic and essential information for students embarking on their study of kinesiology, and this updated fifth edition prepares them for future courses and further study.

An Introduction to Intermediate and Advanced Statistical Analyses for Sport and Exercise Scientists Book Excerpt:

"Ntoumanis and Myers have done sport and exercise science researchers and students a tremendous service in producing An Introduction to Intermediate and Advanced Statistical Analyses for Sport and Exercise Scientists. This book has an outstanding compilation of comprehensible chapters dealing with the important concepts and technical minutia of the statistical analyses that sport and exercise science scholars use (or should be using!) in their efforts to conduct meaningful research in the field. It is a resource that all sport and exercise scientists and their students should have on their book shelves." —Robert Eklund, School of Sport, University of Stirling, UK "Motivating, to have a statistics text devoted to enabling researchers studying sport and exercise science to apply the most sophisticated analytical techniques to their data. Authors hit the mark between using technical language as necessary and user-friendly terms or translations to keep users encouraged. Text covers traditional and well-used tools but also less common and more complex tools, but always with familiar examples to make their explanations come alive. As a dynamic systems theorist and developmentalist, I would love to see more researchers in my area create study designs that would enable the use of tools outlined here, such as multilevel structural equation modeling (MSEM) or mediation & moderation analyses, to uncover cascades of relations among subsystems contributing to motor performance, over time. This text can facilitate that outcome." —Beverly D. Ulrich, School of Kinesiology, University of Michigan, USA "The domain of quantitative methods is constantly evolving and expanding. This means that there is tremendous pressure on researchers to stay current, both in terms of best practices and improvements in more traditional methods as well as increasingly complex new methods. With this volume Ntoumanis and Myers present a nice cross-section of both, helping sport and exercise science researchers to address old questions in better ways, and, even more excitingly, to address new questions entirely. I have no doubt that this volume will quickly become a lovingly dog-eared companion for students and researchers, helping them to continue to move the field forward." —Gregory R. Hancock, University of Maryland and Center for Integrated Latent Variable Research (CILVR), USA

Race Gender and Sport Book Excerpt:

The experiences of ethnic ‘Other’ females have – until recently – been widely overlooked in the study of sport. There continues to be a need to produce critical scholarship about ethnic 'Other' girls and women in sport and physical culture, in order to represent their complex, multifarious and dynamic lived realities. This international collection of critical essays provides compelling insight into the lived realities of ethnic ‘Other’ females in sport. Throughout the book, contributors either draw on the political consciousnesses of ‘Other’ feminisms, or privilege the voices of ethnic 'Other' girls and women so as to broaden, diversify and advance critical thinking pertaining to ethnic ‘Other’ females in sport and physical culture. The purpose of the collection is both to produce knowledge and privilege otherwise subjugated knowledges, which individually and collectively present counter-narratives that better speak to the lived realities of racially oppressed groups of women and girls. Race, Gender and Sport: The Politics of Ethnic 'Other' Girls and Women is important reading for all students and scholars with an interest in the sociology of sport, gender studies, or race and ethnicity studies.
