Rethinking Aggression and Violence in Sport

By John H. Kerr | Go to book overview

Acknowledgements

My thanks to two fellow athletes, Ian Purcell and Paul Tacon, whose best games, like mine, are behind them. Along with Randall Braman, who has an intuitive understanding of motivation in sport, Ian and Paul provided numerous helpful insights in my discussions with them on aggression and violence in sport. I am also grateful to Ian, Mike Apter and Mieke Mitchell for their constructive criticism of early drafts of this book and to Mieke for her invaluable copy-editing. My thanks are also due to Routledge, especially Simon Whitmore, who initially took on the idea for the book, and Samantha Grant and the production team who saw it through to publication.

The author is grateful to Open University Press/McGraw-Hill Publishing Co., John Wiley & Sons Inc., and Routledge for permission to reproduce material (specific details are included in the text).
