This book examines women's participation in the Olympic Games since they were allowed to be included in that global arena. Using a holistic, social scientific approach, and emphasizing the rhetoric of sport mediatization, Female Olympians reviews the literature relative to sexism, racism, and ageism before providing historical, political, economic, and socio-cultural perspectives such as the gendered language of Olympic reportage, religious considerations, women’s bodies relative to their training for the Games, drugs and doping, and female Paralympians. With numerous critical case studies, never-before assembled data, and personal interviews with athletes, this volume offers insights that both investigate and celebrate female Olympians’ successes.

Ist die Olympische Idee auch und immer noch eine ‚Erziehungsidee‘? Der neue Band der Reihe ‚Bildung und Sport‘ greift diese Fragestellung auf und gibt einen Einblick in die pädagogischen Zusammenhänge, in denen der Komplex ‚Olympia‘ sowohl historisch als auch theoretisch steht. Die Diskussion um die Veranstaltung olympischer Jugendspiele, die erstmals 2010 in Singapur ausgetragen wurden, hat die Frage nach den Potenzialen und Problemen olympischer Pädagogik neu aufgeworfen.

This book is an historical survey of women’s sport from 1850-1960. It looks at some of the more recent methodological approaches to writing sports history and raises questions about how the history of women’s sport has so far been shaped by academic writers. Questions explored in this text include: What are the fresh perspectives and newly available sources for the historian of women’s sport? How do these take forward established debates on women’s place in sporting culture and what novel approaches do they suggest? How can our appreciation of fashion, travel, food and medical history be advanced by looking at women’s involvement in sport? How can we use some of the current ideas and methodologies in the recent literature on the history and sociology of sport in order to look afresh at women’s participation? Jean Williams’s original research on these topics and more will be a useful resource for scholars in the fields of sports, women’s studies, history and sociology.

Twilight of the Belle Epoque

The Paris of Picasso, Stravinsky, Proust, Renault, Marie Curie, Gertrude Stein, and Their Friends through the Great War

Mary McAuliffe’s Dawn of the Belle Epoque took the reader from the multiple disasters of 1870–1871 through the extraordinary re-emergence of Paris as the cultural center of the Western world. Now, in Twilight of the Belle Epoque, McAuliffe portrays Paris in full flower at the turn of the twentieth century, where creative dynamos such as Picasso, Matisse, Stravinsky, Debussy, Ravel, Proust, Marie Curie, Gertrude Stein, Jean Cocteau, and Isadora Duncan set their respective circles on fire with a barrage of revolutionary visions and discoveries. Such dramatic breakthroughs were not limited to the arts or sciences, as innovators and entrepreneurs such as Louis Renault, André Citroën, Paul Poiret, François Coty, and so many others—including those magnificent men and women in their flying machines—emphatically demonstrated. But all was not well in this world, remembered in hindsight as a golden age, and wrenching struggles between Church and state as well as between haves and have-nots shadowed these years, underscored by the ever-more-ominous drumbeat of the approaching Great War—a cataclysm that would test the mettle of the City of Light, even as it brutally brought the Belle Epoque to its close. Through rich illustrations and evocative narrative, McAuliffe brings this remarkable era from 1900 through World War I to vibrant life.

There has been an explosion in the quantity of sports history literature published in recent years, making it increasingly difficult to keep abreast of developments. The annual number of publications has increased from around 250 to 1,000 a year over the last decade. This is due in part to the fact that during the late 1980s and 90s, many clubs, leagues and governing bodies of sport have celebrated their centenaries and produced histories to mark this occasion and commemorate their achievements. It is also the result of the growing popularity and realisation of the importance of sport history research within academe. This international bibliography of books, articles, conference proceedings and essays in the English language is a one-stop for the sports historian to know what is new.

Olympic Follies

The Madness and Mayhem of the 1908 London Games : a Cautionary Tale

The London Olympics of 1908, was intended to reveal Britain and its empire at its zenith. Before the games had ended, almost everything that could go wrong had, the organisers were universally condemned and it had caused a number of international incidents. When squabbling between Rome and Milan as to who should host the Games became too much, they were moved, at the last minute, to London. Two influential, well-meaning but incredibly inefficient English aristocrats picked up the baton and declared that London would show the world how to mount a major international athletics event. The games opened in the pouring rain, which was to continue for the whole two weeks. One country insisted that another country march under it’s banner, yet another country complained that it was under the banner of Britain when it shouldn’t be, and another refused to dip its banner to King Edward causing uproar. Decisions on competitions were questioned, contestants were accused of being professionals, a rival dropped the ‘shot’ of the shot-put on the foot of a competitor and one contestant ended up running a race alone. Amongst the chaos there were some class performances but these were by overshadowed by disputes, back-biting, disqualifications and more, even after it finished two weeks later. Olympic Follies is a superb, entertaining tale of one of the most fascinating, unusual and often hilarious Games ever held – a must for anyone looking forward to the London Olympics of 2012. Graeme Kent is a former BBC producer who has written a number of books on the history of sport, including The Great White Hopes, which was short-listed for the 2005 William Hill Sports Book of the Year award.

Mit dem Pensionsfonds wollte der Gesetzgeber in Deutschland in Anlehnung an auslandische Vorbilder eine Einrichtung der betrieblichen Altersversorgung mit vergleichsweise liberaler regulierter Vermogensanlage einfuhren. Zudem sollte ein flexibles Instrument der arbeitnehmerfinanzierten Altersversorgung geschaffen werden. Ob und inwieweit diese Ziele erreicht wurden, ist Gegenstand dieser Arbeit. Rechtsvergleichend und regulierungstheoretisch werden die Institution Pensionsfonds und deren Rechtsbeziehungen zu Arbeitgeber und begunstigtem Arbeitnehmer untersucht. Insbesondere bei der Rechtsbeziehung zwischen finanzierendem Arbeitnehmer und Pensionsfonds sowie der Sicherung der Rechte des Arbeitnehmers werden Probleme in der bestehenden Regulierung aufgezeigt und Vorschlage zu ihrer Losung unterbreitet."
