In the process, it addresses key topics such as: - nations and nationalism - globaliation - race - gender - political economy Power Games can be used as a complete introduction to the study of sport and society, and will be essential reading for any serious student of sport. At the same time, it is a provocative book that by argument and example challenges those who research and write about sport to make their work relevant to social and political reform.
