Editorial Reviews

The opening section offers three outstanding essays about hockey’s origin and history. (…)

The seven “documents,” I thought, were a notable innovation. They consist of either experiential statements or brief historical materials. (…) Two last features of the book are worth noting. One is that the text is printed on glossy heavy-stock paper, which allows a sharp reproduction of many colour photographs, and adds a slightly coffee-table book-like feel—a nice touch for a volume that balances academic and popular concerns. The other is that a few of the texts are in French. This seems especially appropriate given the focus on diversity. (…)

Hockey: Challenging Canada’s Game is an excellent interdisciplinary resource for people interested in taking hockey seriously as a topic for research.

— Rethinking Hockey

De manière générale, on ne peut que saluer la démarche de Jenny Ellison et Jennifer Anderson qui ont rassemblé un imposant contingent de spécialistes du hockey issus d’horizons disciplinaires aussi variés que les aspects abordés. Alors que le hockey professionnel est habituellement le centre d’intérêt de bien des chercheur.e.s universitaires et détient une part importante des publications scientifiques sur le sport au Canada, les recherches sur le hockey amateur ou récréatif ainsi que sur le hockey féminin rassemblées ici sont un apport significatif à la connaissance. (...) L’impression qu’on retire de la lecture de Hockey : Challenging Canada’s Game – Au-delà du sport national, c’est la volonté des codirectrices et des collaborateur.trice.s de décoloniser le savoir sur le hockey.
