Contrary to the popular belief that sport is an arena largely free from the corrosive effects of racism, this title argues that racism is evident throughout British sport. From playing fields and boardrooms of sports organizations, to the offices of sports policy makers and the media, the book aims to show how discourses of "race" and nation continue to prevade our sporting life. Looking at a range of sports, including football, rugby league and cricket, the work covers key topics such as: British nationalism and nationalist ideology; racial science and the images of Asian and black physicality; sport, racism and the law; black feminism and the issues of race, gender and sport; the role of the media in perpetuating and challenging racial stereotypes. Challenging the prevailing liberal view that sport is one area of society where "good race-relations" are developed, the book offers research material, and a theoretical perspective on contemporary British sport. It should therefore be of interest to sociologists, sports studies students, sport policy-makers and anyone with an interest in contemporary British sport.
