Peters, Derek M., editor of compilation; Kohe, Geoffery Z., 1983- editor of compilation

As the profile of disability sport has risen, so has the emphasis grown beyond participation to include the development of a high performance environment. This book takes an in-depth look at the role of coaches and coaching in facilitating the professionalisation of disability sport, in raising performance standards, and as an important vector for the implementation of significant political, socio-cultural and technological change
