Sport Empire (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


The Sport Empire applies a new theoretical lens to provide a greater understanding of the globalisation of sport. Drawing on the work of Hardt and Negri in their ground breaking book "Empire" this book critiques the globalisation of sport from an Autonomist Marxist perspective. This analysis is supported by numerous international sport examples that highlight how sport is being governed by a select group of sport organisations, multinational companies and media conglomerates. This domination of the sport industry is marginalising disadvantaged groups and is subsequently being challenged by new methods of protest and resistance. The Sport Empire provides compelling reading for those interested in the effects of globalisation of sport.
