    Literaturtipps

    Literatur zum Dameneishockey findet sich bisher vor allem im englischsprachigen Raum und in Zeiten von http://www.amazon.de oder http://www.amazon.com ist es relativ problemlos möglich auch in Deutschland diese Bücher zu bekommen.
    Alle hier vorgestellten Bücher habe ich selbst gelesen oder zumindest überflogen um mir eine eigene Meinung zu bilden sowie Kauftipps abzugeben. In den nächsten Wochen werde ich hier zu jedem Buch eine kleine Rezession veröffentlichen. Wer nicht solange warten möchte kann sich die Bücher via Internet bestellen. Aus meiner Erfahrung kann ich von Lieferzeiten zwischen 1 Woche und ca. 2 Monaten berichten - dafür bekommt man die Werke zu fairen Preisen.
    Einen grundsätzlichen Tipp möchte ich für das erste Buch auf der Liste aussprechen: Proud Past, Bright Future : One Hundred Years of Canadian Women's Hockey ist das absolute Standardwerk was die Geschichte des Kanadischen Dameneishockeys angeht. Mit sehr viel Geduld und Akribie haben die Autoren neben unzähligen spannenden Geschichten einen Reigen wunderschöner Fotografien aus über 100 Jahren Dameneishockey gesammelt. Dieses Buch ist ein absoluter Schatz für jeden Eishockeyfreund.

    Englisch ist Pflicht...
    ... und macht Spass! D.h. ich bin auch nicht versessen darauf alles in englischer Sprache lesen zu müssen aber hier liegt auch eine Chance. Die hier vorgestellten Bücher sind alle derart interessant, daß es leicht fällt englisch zu lesen oder wenigstens zu lernen. Crashing the Net : The U.S. Women's Olympic Ice Hockey Team and the Road to Gold war das erste englische Buch meines Lebens, welches ich mit Vergnügen und freiwillig :-) von vorne bis hinten gelesen habe - die Motivation ist hier die halbe Miete und Schaden kann es nicht.






    Proud Past, Bright Future : One Hundred Years of Canadian Women's Hockey

    Brian McFarlane

    Proud Past, Bright Future Heute mache ich ausnahmsweise einmal etwas Werbung.
    Vor etwa 5 Wochen habe ich dieses Buch bei Amazon entdeckt und spontan bestellt. Seit einigen Tagen habe ich dieses Buch in Händen und ich muß sagen, daß ich begeistert bin.
    Der Autor erweckt die Geschichte des Canadischen Dameneishockey mit wunderbaren Anektoden und Bildern zum Leben. Man erfährt unter anderem, daß Lord Stanley nicht zuletzt durch seine Eishockeybegeisterte Tochter zur Stiftung des des nach ihm benannten Stanley-Cups inspirirt wurde.

    Das Buch ist in seiner Aufmachung und Verarbeitung jede Mark wert.

    Crashing the Net : The U.S. Women's Olympic Ice Hockey Team and the Road to Gold

    Mary Turco
    Meine zweite Empfehlung geschieht mit einigen Einschränkungen: Crashing the Net ist eine geniale Schilderung der Reise des US-Olympiateams  hin zum Sieg in Nagano - und zugleich ist diese Buch durch und durch 'amerikanisch'. Eine genervte Online-Rezession schrieb: 'alles heroisch, alle sind stark, schön und intelligent...'. Irgendwann nervt der glorifizierende Unterton der Autorin durchaus, doch wenn man ihn ignoriert bekommt man eine herrliche Schilderung des amerikanischen Dameneishockeys geliefert. Der - zum Teil schwierige -Werdegang der Spielerinnen, die Gedanken und Entscheidungen des Trainers, der Schwere Weg des Cuts, die Hoffnungen und Enttäuschungen des Sports - alles bekommt man geboten. So nah war selten ein Autor bei einem Team dabei.

    Proud Past, Bright Future Kundenrezensionen auf http://www.amazon.com

    An unapologetically feel-good human-interest look at the 1998 American winners of the first Olympic gold medal ever awarded in women's ice hockey. Turco, a teacher in the Women's Studies Program at Dartmouth College, accompanied the team as they trained for and competed in the Olympic games at Nagano, Japan. Her account of events is intermingled with the coach's and players' thoughts; particularly affecting are the days leading to the final cuts of the player roster and the account of the gold-medal final against the teams arch rival, Canada. Team camaraderie and the ideal of sportsmanship are discussed more than actual hockey play. Even though there are entries from one player's journal and personal details are given about each woman, no individual voice stands out. Nearly all the players are portrayed as attractive, intelligent girls-next-door, who played nobly for the love of the sport, team, country, and with a sense of history. These women were beneficiaries of Title IX legislation, enacted in 1972, which called for sex equity in educational programs or activities receiving federal financial assistance. They had unqualified support from family, boyfriends, and coaches. They were born believing that ``girls can do anything, ``and were far enough beyond the pioneering years of women's sports that, while training, they learned more from the experiences of Muhammad Ali than Wilma Rudolph or Billie Jean King. But in her preface, Turco stresses that although the number of girls playing high school sports has grown (from 294,000 in 1971 to 2,472,043 in 199697), the cultural and financial battles for opportunities for females on the playing fields remain, particularly in the collegiate and professional realms. The epilogue's recap of the team's recognition and honors after the Olympics gives hope that their memorable gold-winning achievement will help advance womens sports at all levels. Crashing the Net is best not for hockey diehards, but for the female reader or general sports fan looking for modern models of inspiration.

    Gold Medal Ice Hockey for Women and Girls

    von Tricia Dunn, Katie King, Brian Tarcy

    Taschenbuch - 256 Seiten - Chandler House Press
    Maße: 19 x 23 cm
    Erscheinungsdatum: Januar 1999
    ISBN: 1886284377
    Kundenrezensionen auf http://www.amazon.com

    Nicely written book., 31. März 1999
    Gold Medal Ice Hockey for Women and Girls Rezensentin/Rezensent: KRV281007@yahoo.com aus Pittsburgh, Pa.
    Tricia and Katie have written this based more towards the beginner type player. There are many great tips on both playing and equipment. Each player (Tricia and Katie) shares her thoughts throughout the book on various subjects such as the way they play and approach the game and the type of equipment preferred. Perhaps the best feature in the book, in my opinion, is the references to their fellow Olympic teammates and the insert pictures. That alone made the book worthwhile to me. :-) Overall, the book is well worth the asking price. You can't go wrong with something written by TWO gold medalists! :-)
    I'd recommend this book to all beginners and general fans of Team USA.

    a great book for hockey lovers! (epecially females), 21. Januar 1999
    Rezensentin/Rezensent: Lisa (hockey8@iname.com) aus USA
    I really enjoyed reading this book. Since I already knew a lot of the basic hockey information from playing, my favorite parts were when Katie and Tricia told about their first hand experiances growing up as female hockey players, and winning Olymipic gold! Although I didn't need the info on the basics of hockey, they were writen in a very easy to understand way. If you want to learn how to play, definatly read that part of the book. I found this to be a very inspiring book. The pictures were great, and they showed how amazing it is to be a part of a team, something they focused on in their book. I hope anyone who sees this book buys it right away and reads it.

    Winning Women in Ice Hockey Rezensentin/Rezensent: aus New Hampshire, USA
    This was a great book with biographies of four great womens icehockey players and their road to success. It also gives a history ofthe game at the beggining of the book. My favorite part was the players advice at the end of their biography.

    Excellent Hockey Info that you need!!, August 8, 2000
    She Shoots..She Scores Reviewer: A reader from Elmira Heights, New York USA
    I would recommend this book if you don't know much or starting out in hockey. It has all the information on equipments all women and girls need for hockey as well on how to skate and so on. There are some interesting information on some players such as Manon Rheaume and Cammi Granato. The book also explains how women hockey began. This is definitely the book all girls should get if they want to be involved in hockey!

    Now there's REALLY no excuse for women not to play hockey., 3. Dezember 1999
    Women's Ice Hockey Basics Rezensentin/Rezensent: Lynn Harris aus Brooklyn, New York
    I've never seen hockey skills and strategy described as clearly as Aaron Foeste has in this book (without any oversimplifying or patronizing!). (Bruce Curtis' excellent photos don't hurt, either.) Skate, don't walk!

    Educational and Strikingly Interesting Read

    The Annotated Rules of Hockey breaks down every rule in effect in the NHL and describes the events leading up to them. Being both fascinating and humorous, any fan of the game (or fans of any game) will love it. This book is a great way to learn about famous players, coaches, teams, officials, and rinks. It also offers detailed game photographs of penalties, fights, and goals, including hand signals. It's perfect for new fans, or long-time followers of hockey. I was very satisfied with the simplicity of the format, unlike other books describing the rules. It's a great way to impress your friends by telling them why we have things like blue lines in the greatest game on earth.
