Summary
"Sport, Race, and Ethnicity: Narratives of Difference and Diversity is a provocative collection that brings together leading international historians, sociologists, political scientists, and cultural theorists who examine sport as an arena for intergroup diversity and the negotiation of difference. Thematically, the book is both wide-ranging and inclusive, for it considers race and ethnicity in tandem; too often these subject areas are segmented into separate studies. The collection features vibrant examples from different eras, places, and spaces, wherein co-themes like post-colonialism, gender, and media representation are embedded. Sport, Race, and Ethnicity is a vital companion for evoking a narrative; it carries within its pages masterfully crafted accounts of history and culture, of questions and conversations, and of emotions that transcend paper and ink. Any reader with a zeal for sport and its boundaries within race and ethnicity will grow significantly by engaging with the authors." -- Back cover
