Children in Sport. Second Edition.
Magill, Richard A., Ed.; And Others
This anthology of papers is designed to serve both as a textbook and as a synthesis of research efforts in youth sport. Half of the 20 papers are reprinted from the first edition of this volume; of the remainder, some were written especially for this edition, while others are culled from journals and conference proceedings. Five subject sections contain: (1) two papers on historical perspectives and future directions of organized children's athletics; (2) three papers on readiness for participation in competitive sports programs; (3) five papers on anatomical and physiological concerns about young athletes; (4) seven papers on psychological issues; and (5) three papers on social processes and group dynamics, including violence in sport.
