Samenvatting

In this innovative study, Patrick Ismond provides an analysis of the issue of racism within British sport. It presents a number of theoretical positions regarding race, racism and sport, before providing a background history of the involvement of minority ethnic communities. Much detailed primary research is used to inform interesting discussions concerning racism in sport and its relationship to ethnicity, identity and notions of Englishness and Britishness. The study also includes a valuable analysis of sexism in sport, and the discrimination suffered by minority ethnic sportswomen.

Recensie(s)

'Patrick Ismond has written an original, powerful and engaging book. In doing so he makes an important contribution to our understanding of the messy interactions between race and sport in British society. Drawing on a wealth of innovative research on black and Asian athletes he helps us to see both the importance of the individual experiences and the wider cultural and social processes that shape them. The result is a book that will become a standard reference for students of race and sport.' - John Solomos, City University, London 'A welcome newcomer. Its innovation is in the use of empirical data in the form of interviews with athletes of Asian and African-Caribbean origin and having a focus broader than merely elite athletes...interesting and illuminating... will be helpful to students in fields as diverse as sociology, history and cultural studies, yet its readability is such that it is worthy of a wider audience.' - The Times Higher Education Supplement 'Ismond very capably teases out the complex and diverse ways that class, gender, ethnicity and 'race' intersect in the respective sporting lives of black and Asian athletes...It is a well written account with plenty of seminar-discussion friendly quotations by the athletes. The text is a worthy addition to the small but growing literature on the critical sociology of sport and 'race'.' - Ian McDonald, Ethnic and Racial Studies
