Routledge Handbook of Sport and Politics (Routledge International Handbooks)
Bairner, Alan (EDT)/ Kelly, John (EDT)/ Lee, Jung Woo (EDT)
This Handbook goes further than any other book in surveying the complex, embedded relationships between sport and politics. With sections addressing ideologies, nation and statehood, corporate politics, political activism, social justice, and the politics of sports events, it introduces the conceptual foundations that underpin our understanding of the sport-politics nexus and examines emergent issues in this field of study. It includes in-depth case studies from North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia.
