Formatted Abstract/Summary
Sports events, participation, and sports programming in the media have come to play an outsize role in contemporary society. Global events like the Olympics or the FIFA World Cup draw billions of viewers but at the same time sports retain a distinctly local flavor. It’s How You Play the Game: International Perspectives on the Study of Sport covers an extraordinary amount of ground from a variety of disciplinary perspectives. From Egypt and Qatar to the Dominican Republic, Australia, and the US, the authors of this fascinating collection use insights drawn from anthropology, communication, political economy and sociology to shed light on the phenomena of sports in the context of politics, identity (personal and collective), business and education, drawing out both the global and local implications of the increasing presence of sports in our lives.
