about this item

Sport has been a component of African cultural life for several hundred years. In today’s globalised world, Africans and Africa have become a vital part of the international sporting landscape. This is the first book to attempt to survey the full historical, contemporary and geographical breadth of that landscape, drawing on multi-disciplinary scholarship and addressing key themes such as colonialism, ethnicity and sporting integration, migration, global sporting politics, mega-events, international sporting organisations, indigenous peoples, and development. It is fascinating reading for anybody with an interest in sport studies, sport history, African history or African culture.
