Editorial Reviews

Review

"Lumpkin's book is a comprehensive bibliographic guide to the game of tennis. Covering books, periodicals, and audiovisual material, this work deals with more than 1,000 sources concerned with the history of tennis, rules, facilities, playing techniques, teaching techniques, the health and psychological benefits derived from playing tennis, and children's books. Particularly useful for those considering purchasing the volume for reference collections are the appendixes that list tennis organizations, tennis players in various halls of fame, and tennis champions at the professional and amateur levels...academic libraries serving strong physical education programs will want to purchase this volume."-CHOICE

About the Author

Student learning is the focus of Angela Lumpkin's approach to teaching. She first seeks to learn who her students are and what they know so that she and her students can work together to determine what they need to know and be able to do. This instructional approach has enabled her to help students effectively explore the fields of physical education, exercise science, and sport studies through the variety of course she had taught from history and philosophy of physical education and sport to sport management. Dr. Lumpkin began her career at the University of North Carolina in 1974 where she advanced to become the first female in the Department of Physical Education to become a full professor. Her undergraduate degree is from the University of Arkansas and her Ph.D. in sport history is from The Ohio State University. Dr. Lumpkin also has an MBA from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She is currently Dean of the School of Education at the University of Kansas. Dr. Lumpkin has held leadership positions in the North Carolina Alliance of Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (NCAHPERD), the National Association for Sport and Physical Education, and many other professional organizations. She is the author of seven books including Introduction to Physical Education, Exercise Science and Sport Studies, fifth edition, and has written numerous refereed articles and made over 100 professional presentations.
