Book Review. Tozer, M. (2012). Physical education and sport in independent schools. John Catt Educational ISBN: 978 1 908095 442 (299 pages)
British physical education has influenced physical education in parts of the world that are former British colonies and Malcolm Tozer’s edited monography, Physical education and sport in independent schools, provides a context for those of us working in physical education in one of those former colonies. The book comprises a wide range of contributions (34 in all from 36 authors) about physical education and sport in British public schools. The content is clustered into four main sections plus an appendix. Generally the authors are writing from a personal perspective and several of the short essays are either abridged life histories or case studies; the editor has established their credibility in short profiles which follow the Foreward. The general purpose of the book is developed the Introduction wherein it is argued that the role of sport in British society has its foundations in school sport and physical education and that athletes in independent schools today are international sports stars of the future.
