Introduced by Professor Philip Dine

All welcome

 

 

This book provides new insights into the evolution of the global sporting spectacle over the last thirty years through an analysis of star athletes, emblematic organisations and key locations in French sport, highlighting how sport has influenced (and been implicated in) debates over nationhood, immigration, commemorative practice, and de-industrialisation.

REVIEW

‘This book should become required reading for academics and students of French sports studies wishing to bring themselves up to date with current thinking about developments in French sport, culture and society in the last two decades.’ Geoff Hare, Newcastle University
