MEDIA REVIEWS

"Lenskyj continues her assault on the hegemony of the Olympic movement, which she refers to as the Olympic industry... The arguments are presented with great literary finesse, and may leave the reader wondering if there is any redeeming value in the Olympic movement"- Choice Review

"Gender Politics and the Olympic Industry brings a much-needed critique of global gendered power relations into a dynamic conversation in feminist sport studies ... [a] timely and highly relevant book" - International Review for the Sociology of Sport
