'This thoughtful selection of theoretical and original research articles is international and interdisciplinary in scope. One is tempted to dismiss the topic as insignificant; however, the book touches on important contemporary social issues: gender, sport and society, globalization of sports, professionalization, women's international labor migration, and skilled transnational labor migration....
