Sports Injuries of the Ankle and Foot presents both surgical and non-surgical protocols for the treatment of both simple and complex sports-related injuries of the foot and ankle. This comprehensive, one-source reference is divided into anatomical sections: the forefoot, the midfoot, the hindfoot, the ankle, tendon disorders, and orthotics and braces - each enhanced by rehabilitation procedures and algorithms. This easy-to-use format enables the physician to formulate a treatment plan and compare the various surgical and non-surgical options for a variety of injuries including: stress and other fractures, ankle instability, ruptures, sprain, ligament injuries, tendonitis, lesions, and neuropathies. As more internists and family physicians increase the scope of their practices to include sports medicine, this book reaches beyond the orthopaedic surgery market and will become a widely referred to source for the treatment of these common injuries.

This momentous four-volume work examines and details the cultural aspects of sport and how sport pervasively reflects and affects myriad aspects of American society from the early 1900s to the present day. Written in a straightforward, readable manner, the entries cover both historical and contemporary aspects of sport and American culture. Unlike purely historical encyclopedias on sports, the contributions within these volumes cover related subject matter such as poetry, novels, music, films, plays, television shows, art and artists, mythologies, artifacts, and people. While this encyclopedia set is ideal for general readers who need information on the diverse aspects of sport in American culture for research purposes or are merely reading for enjoyment, the detailed nature of the entries will also prove useful as an initial source for scholars of sport and American culture. Each entry provides a number of both print and online resources for further investigation of the topic.

Previously known as Statistical Methods for Health Sciences, this bestselling resource is one of the first books to discuss the methodologies used for the analysis of clustered and correlated data. While the fundamental objectives of its predecessors remain the same, Analysis of Correlated Data with SAS and R, Third Edition incorporates several additions that take into account recent developments in the field.

New to the Third Edition

  • The introduction of R codes for almost all of the numerous examples solved with SAS
  • A chapter devoted to the modeling and analyzing of normally distributed variables under clustered sampling designs
  • A chapter on the analysis of correlated count data that focuses on over-dispersion
  • Expansion of the analysis of repeated measures and longitudinal data when the response variables are normally distributed
  • Sample size requirements relevant to the topic being discussed, such as when the data are correlated because the sampling units are physically clustered or because subjects are observed over time
  • Exercises at the end of each chapter to enhance the understanding of the material covered
  • An accompanying CD-ROM that contains all the data sets in the book along with the SAS and R codes

    Assuming a working knowledge of SAS and R, this text provides the necessary concepts and applications for analyzing clustered and correlated data.

  • The Eu In International Sports Governance

    RRP $238.99

    This book analyses the levels of influence that the European Union (EU) has over sport governing bodies (SGBs). Contrasting with the US authorities' decisive action, the EU seemed largely absent from the 2015 FIFA corruption saga. Even though the EU has established itself as an actor in its own right in international sports governance, there is still a lack of clarity over its capabilities to control SGBs. By employing a triangular principal-agent model, and by focusing on the case of EU control of FIFA and UEFA, the author demonstrates that the EU holds significant opportunities to control SGBs through both law and policy. There are, however, important limits as well. EU institutional features complicate control, but do not render the EU powerless. Most importantly, though, SGBs can deploy a variety of strategies to mitigate control. In considering these strategies and their effects on the EU's influence, this book provides an informed analysis that will particularly appeal to students and scholars of the EU, sports organizations, and global governance.
