Summary: "This is the first book to survey the participation of women in sport and physical education across Asia, from the Middle East and South Asia through to the Asia-Pacific region. Covering sport and physical activity at all levels, from school-based PE and community sport to elite, high-performance sport, the book provides an important overview of developments in policy, theory and research across this complex and dynamic region. It has a strong focus on gender equity but is informed by important intersecting influences that affect the lives of girls and women and their participation in sport, such as disability and socio-cultural context. Including contributions from leading scholars from across the region, the book draws on multi-disciplinary perspectives, including sociology, cultural studies, anthropology and history, and makes an important contribution to global understanding of diversity, challenges and achievements in the sporting lives of Asian Women. This is fascinating reading for any student, researcher or policy-maker working in sport studies, gender studies, women's studies or Asian studies"-- Provided by publisher.
