Description: This is the first book-length study to addresses sport's role in 'the making of race', the place of sport within black Diasporic struggles for equality, and the contested location of sport in relation to the politics of recognition within contemporary multicultural societies.Â Over the past century sport has occupied a dominant position within Western culture, producing both ideas of racial difference and alterity while providing a powerful and public model for forms of black cultural resistance. Written by one of the leading international authorities on the sociology of race and sport, this is the first book that centrally locates sport within the cultural politics of the black Diaspora.
