Is the strive for increasing performance and an ever-growing sports sector compatible with sustainable development? This is the key issue that the authors investigates in a new book: Sport, Performance and Sustainability, edited by Daniel Svensson, Erik Backman, Susanna Hedenborg and Sverker Sörlin.

Sport, Performance and Sustainability examines the logic of "faster higher, and stronger" and the technoscientific revolution that has driven tremendous growth in the sports economy and in sport performance over the last 100 years.

The chapters provide valuable perspectives on the tensions between performance and sustainability. Co-authors include Sigmund Loland, Simon Beames, Itai Danielski, Andreas Isgren Karlsson, Jack Reed, Johan Carlsson, Isak Lidström, Bo Carlsson and Marie Larneby.

Sport, performance and Sustainability is publisehd by Routledge and written within MISTRA Sport and Outdoor  - a research and collaboration programme to generate knowledge and solutions for increased sustainability in sport and outdoor recreation.

The book is due for printing in May, but is already now available open access online. Read it online here: Sport, Performance and Sustainability
