  6. Highly Recommended by CHOICE Reviews - Women, Soccer and Transnational Migration

    Edited by Sine Agergaard and Nina Clara Tiesler

    'This thoughtful selection of theoretical and original research articles is international and interdisciplinary in scope. One is tempted to dismiss the topic as insignificant; however, the book touches on important contemporary social issues: gender, sport and society, globalization of sports, professionalization, women's international labor migration, and skilled transnational labor migration.... The book's unique contribution lies in advancing a transnational perspective of labor migration. The editors have done a great job of bracketing the empirical studies with theoretical discussions. Summing Up: Highly recommended.' - G. K. Hearn, Idaho State University, CHOICE April 2015  Order your copy today
