Elite Sport and Sport-for-All : Bridging the Two Cultures?
Drawing on research and case studies from around the world-with examples from Denmark, Canada, South Africa and Israel-the book explores key contemporary issues including:
does effective talent identification require depth of participation?
do elite performances inspire greater participation?
the role of the Paralympic movement in mass participation and elite sport;
and the economic aspects of their co-existence.
The first study of its kind, Elite Sport and Sport-for-All addresses a central dichotomy in sport policy and, as such, is important reading for all students, researchers, policy-makers or administrators working in sport development and policy.
