The International Politics of Sport in the 20th Century

Synopsis

Taking the turn of the century as a good time for a recap, ten sports scholars from five countries look at global issues, including the Olympic Games and the International Football Federation (soccer) and the impact of communism, Nazism, religion, and working-class culture. Then they look at more specific issues, such as the struggle of black athletes for recognition in the US, the part played by sport in the racist apartheid regime of South Africa, the rise of women's sport, the fight for rights by handicapped and gay athletes, and the relationship between sport and terrorism.
