Haag, Herbert, Ed.; And Others
This book presents papers from a symposium held to analyze, discuss, and clarify the understanding and nature of comparative physical education and sport. Comparative descriptions of more than 15 countries' physical education and sport systems are provided. The proceedings are grouped by the four major topics of the symposium. The topics discussed in each part are: (1) content and research methodology of comparative physical education and sport; (2) comparative research on physical activity within schools; (3) comparative research on physical activity outside of schools; and (4) teaching of courses in comparative physical education and sport in higher education. Particular emphasis is placed on comparisons between Western and Communist countries. (JD)
