Millions of working class people watch or participate in sports, and yet sport is shaped by the drives and contradictions of capitalism. The essays in this collection focus on the politics of, and politics in, sport. They look at the origins of sport regulation, the impact of globalisation and the place of individual and collective resistance. Covering issues such as racism, doping, sexism, fan movements and great figures from Muhammad Ali to Billie Jean King to Palestinian footballer Mahmoud Sarsak, this is a radical journey through sporting history.
