Few issues have engaged sports scholars more than those of race and ethnicity. Today, globalization and migration mean all major sports leagues include players from around the globe, bringing into play a complex mix of racial, ethnic, cultural, political and geographical factors. These complexities have been examined from many angles by historians, sociologists, anthropologists and scientists. This is the first book to offer a comprehensive survey of the full sweep of approaches to the study of sport, race and ethnicity. The Routledge Handbook of Sport, Race and Ethnicity makes a substantial contribution to scholarship, presenting a collection of international case studies that map the most important developments in the field. Multi-disciplinary in its approach, it engages with a wide range of disciplines including history, politics, sociology, philosophy, science and gender studies. It draws upon the latest cutting-edge research to address key issues such as racism, integration, globalisation, development and management. Written by a world-class team of sports scholars, this book is essential reading for all students, researchers and policy-makers with an interest in sports studies.

Sport and Contested Identities

Contemporary Issues and Debates

Identity is one of the most theorised and contested of all sociological concepts and sport is fertile ground for an examination of its complexities. This book offers a wide-ranging and up-to-date exploration of the sport-identity nexus, drawing examples from a variety of sporting contexts and geographical locations, and incorporating a diversity of perspectives including players, spectators, officials, the media and policy-makers. Covering key themes in the social scientific study of sport such as gender, ethnicity and national identity, it considers the impact of social, cultural and technological change on the formation of sporting identities. Including original real-life case studies, each chapter makes a unique contribution to our understanding of the complex relationship between sport and identity. As this relationship is embedded within the broader structures of power that frame social inequality, this book also poses important questions about the role of sport-related initiatives in our society today, as well as in years to come. Sport and Contested Identities: Contemporary Issues and Debates is fascinating reading for all students and scholars of the sociology of sport.

`Race', Sport and British Society

Contrary to the popular belief that sport is an arena largely free from the corrosive effects of racism, this book argues that racism is evident throughout British sport. From playing fields and boardrooms of sports organisations, to the offices of sports policy makers and the media, this book breaks new ground in showing how discourses of 'race' and nation continue to pervade our sporting life. Looking at a range of sports, including football, rugby league and cricket, this book 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, this book offers a wealth of research material, and a strong theoretical perspective on contemporary British sport. It will therefore be of vital interest to sociologists, sports studies students, sport policy-makers and anyone with an interest in contemporary British sport.

In The Death and Life of Great American Cities durchleuchtet Jane Jacobs 1961 die fragwürdigen Methoden der Stadtplanung und Stadtsanierung in Amerika, der "New Yorker" nannte es das unkonventionellste und provozierendste Buch über Städtebau seit langem. Die deutsche Ausgabe wurde schnell auch im deutschsprachigem Raum zu einer viel gelesenen und diskutierten Lektüre. Sie ist jetzt wieder in einem Nachdruck zugänglich, mit einem Vorwort von Gerd Albers (1993), das nach der Aktualität dieser Streitschrift fragt.

Amerika Tag und Nacht

Reisetagebuch 1947

Author: Simone de Beauvoir

Publisher: Rowohlt Verlag GmbH

Eine glänzende, intime Reportage über das geistige Amerika. Eine Reise durch den gewaltigen Kontinent, kreuz und quer, im Pullman, im Greyhound, im Flugzeug, im Auto, hat die berühmte französische Autorin Simone de Beauvoir gerade mit der Schicht des amerikanischen Volks in Gespräch und Verbindung gebracht, von der wir wenig hören, nämlich der amerikanischen Intelligenz. Vor anderen Amerikabüchern zeichnet sich das Buch daher aus, weil hier einmal nicht der Primat der Politik, Wirtschaft oder Technik gefeiert, nicht die Schlagwortwelt der Trapper, der letzten Indianer, der Hollywoodstars und Ölmagnaten aufgetischt wird, sondern weil eine überzeugte europäische Individualistin freimütig mit Journalisten, Gelehrten, Künstlern und Studenten Probleme der Neuen und Alten Welt diskutiert.

Ein karibischer Roman vom Strand der Zukunft – und die uralte Frage, brennend wie der Kuss einer Seeanemone: Wer ist Ich? "Tentakel" tankt den magischen Treibstoff lateinamerikanischer und karibischer Traditionen, um deren Grenzen lustvoll hinter sich zu lassen. Ein Roman, der unsere Fragen nach Identität, Sex und Gender auf unkonventionelle Weise verhandelt – und eine so bemerkenswerte wie befreiende Antwort findet. Ein kompromissloses, schnelles, unverschämtes Buch, an dem sich nicht nur die Voodoo-Geister scheiden – wie immer, wenn Literatur etwas wagt.
