The first provides an overview of current theory and research in difference and inequality in PE, youth sport and health, together with an introduction to narrative forms of knowing. The second section includes 30 short narrative pieces about difference that bring to life the key themes and issues within the subject area. The third section draws upon a selection of narratives to offer detailed, practical suggestions for how they might be used in, or inform, teaching sessions.This is the first book to explore issues of equity through narrative, and the first to examine narrative methods and their pedagogical value within PE, youth sport and health. With contributions from many of the world's leading equity specialists, it will be invaluable reading for all students, scholars and professionals working in PE, youth sport, health, sports development, gender studies and mainstream education programmes.
