The Oxford Dictionary of Sports Science and Medicine

This comprehensive and authorative dictionary provides an invaluable reference book for anyone interested in the fascinating subject of sport. It covers all the major areas of sports science and medicine, including anatomy, biomechanics, exercise physiology, nutrition, sports psychology, sports sociology, sports injuries, and training principles. This dictionary was compiled, in its first edition, by a team of eminent contributors and advisers. Since the first edition was published, the disciplines of sport science and sport medicine have grown rapidly and generated a wealth of new information. The second edition includes over 7500 cross-referenced terms which have been updated or added since the first edition. There are 165 illustrations, including twenty new ones, and four appendices have been added including one on Banned Substances. The dictionary will be of particular help to medical specialists, students of PE, coaches, and athletes who need to understand the scientific principles, physiological processes, and anatomical structures which affect sporting performance. It will also be useful to the general reader interested in health and fitness, or willing to understand the meanings of such terms as A-band, jogger's hipple, maximal aerobic power, social loafing, and zero-sum competition.
