This allows the definition of some universally accepted features and concepts, and of appropriate responses to common problems. It is the first publication to provide concentrated information on the state of PE around the world.

This collection of essays celebrates the 70th birthday of Professor Roland Naul. The chapters, written by colleagues and friends, illustrate the development of sport and physical activity research over four decades. They give an overview and update of relevant fields that determined the academic work of Roland Naul and new insights. The chapters have been grouped under the following aspects: Roland Naul as Schola Ludens Europaeus, with a focus on his special fields of interest and research; general education and sport education including the relationship between sport pedagogy and social pedagogy; old and new challenges for the Olympic Games movement, as described from the perspective of different countries; health-enhancing physical activity (HEPA), a key policy area which Roland Naul has helped shape in the European Union; and finally, sport policy on a local level. This commemorative publication acknowledges the merits of Roland Naul for European studies in physical education and youth sports, as well as for the sport policy context in Europe.

This book has been produced as a tribute to the work of Martin Lee on the role of sport in the socio-moral education of young people. After conducting the first UK conference on Children in Sport, founded the Institute for the Study of Children in Sport at Bedford College of Higher Education in 1986 and created level 1, 2 and 3 courses on coaching children for the National Coaching Foundation. He also edited a book on Coaching Children in Sport. His course book on Coaching Children in Mini-basketball was produced for international distribution. The study of values has been central in Martin’s research which also embraced such topics as self-concept, leadership, coaching behaviour, and parental influence. In a series of research commissions examined the literature, clarified measurement requirements, identified values activated in sport, and led an international project on fair play. He then ran a survey to show how values influence attitudes directly and through the mediation of achievement goals. Two new instruments arose from this research: the Attitudes to Moral Decision-making in Youth Sport Questionnaire and the Youth Sport Values Questionnaire-2. These will open up research into gamesmanship, by which competitors seek an unfair advantage without breaking the rules, and into the mechanisms by which moral, competence and status values guide behaviour and create value conflicts. I am also grateful to colleagues at the University of Coimbra for their initiative in gathering the distinguished international scholars who have contributed to this book. Their collective insights will enhance the understanding of socio-moral education through sport and lead to informed and sensitive policy development in both sport and education.

Данная монография посвящена анализу с позиций гуманизма и на основе диалектической методологии актуальных социальных проблем современного спорта и олимпийского движения, которое превратилось в самое массовое, глобальное, неполитическое социальное движение.В центре внимания автора монографии концепция современного олимпизма, которую сформулировал Кубертен, современные интерпретации этой концепции, успехи и пробелы в ее реализации. С позиций гуманизма дается оценка тех революционных изменений в олимпийском движении, которые произошли в этом движении в последние десятилетия и связаны с процессами коммерциализации и профессионализации олимпийского спорта. Детально обсуждается также роль спорта в процессе социализации личности и в системе социальных отношений.Опираясь на результаты своей многолетней (с 1972 г.) разработки социальных проблем спорта и олимпийского движения, автор стремится изложить и обосновать свое решение этих проблем. Вместе с тем сделана попытка дать по возможности полное представление о различных подходах к их решению. Этим стремлением автора объясняются многочисленные ссылки в тексте на публикации отечественных и зарубежных авторов по обсуждаемым социальным проблемам современного спорта и олимпийского движения, а также обширная библиография соответствующих публикаций.Монография носит междисциплинарный характер и адресована как научным работникам, преподавателям, аспирантам, студентам, так и широкому кругу читателей – всем, кто пытается понять смысл и значение современного олимпийского движения.
