Description - Sport and National Identity in the Post-War World by Dilwyn Porter

The concepts of 'nationality' and 'national identity' continue to receive a great deal of attention, with sport as one of the most telling areas for its expression. Concentrating on the period since 1945, Sport and National Identity in the Post-War World makes an important contribution to the literature on this topic. A broad range of international case-studies explores how sport has helped to shape 'national identities', and how national cultures have shaped contemporary sport, including: - England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland - Sport in post-industrial, postcolonial times - New Zealand and Australia - The Caribbean - South Africa - The USA One of the first texts to examine modern social history in conjunction with sports, this book will be of great interest to sports historians, sociologists and all those with an interest in sport, culture, and international politics.
