Reviews

'Captivating.' - Sport, Education and Society

'The collection does,a good job of highlighting the main policy and theoretical struggles in the field and would make for a fine reader, a good 'benchmark' piece for reference as the field expands, as well as a launch point for further inquiry into the nuances of theoretical and substantive positions adopted and advocated in the book.' - Leisure/Loisir

'a most welcome addition to the literature on the politics of race, anti-racism and sports policy, which has relevance and application for students and policy makers. This is a text that will appeal to undergraudate and postgraduates students.' - Kath Woodward, Leisure Studies
