Sport, Revolution and the Beijing Olympics by Grant Jarvie Sport, Revolution and the Beijing Olympics, Hardback (April 2008)

The 2008 Olympic Games will be held in Beijing but many human rights activists support a boycott. They liken the circumstances to previous governments that used the games to glorify their regimes - most notoriously the Nazis in 1936. What has led to this perception and is it fair? This work challenges many such ingrained Western assumptions.

Sport, Racism and Ethnicity by Grant Jarvie Sport, Racism and Ethnicity, Paperback (May 1991)

Considers racism experienced by athletes in South Africa, the Caribbean, Canada and the USA as well as in Britain. The contributor examine topics such as how cricket in the Caribbean has stimulated national and racial self-consciousness and to what extent women are accommodated in sport in Canada.
