Format: Hardcover
This is a very interesting and informative book. Gina Daddario is a very talented author and Im looking forward to any more books she publishes. I have recommended Women's Sport and Spectacle: Gendered Television Coverage and the Olympic Games to many of my students who have also enjoyed this wonderful book.
