Críticas: Through accessible, crisp writing and impressive research in US, German, Russian, and Swiss archives, Keys...details the rapid growth of international sport despite the inhospitable nationalistic environment of the 1930s. In order to elucidate sport's peculiar potency as the means of mediating between national and international identities, Keys analyzes the 1932 Olympics in Los Angeles (whose publicity was practically hijacked by the Hollywood glitterati) Adolf Hitler's 1936 Berlin Olympics, and Josef Stalin's early sovietization of soccer as examples of how nation-states joined the global sport system to promote nationalist--if not chauvinistic--objectives and, yet, fomented internationalism. Although clearly demonstrating that sport tends toward indigenization and xenophobia (best illustrated by Friedrich Ludwig Jahn's German gymnastics movement in the early 19th century), the author emphasizes the transnational origins and connections of modern sport.--E.A. Sanabria"Choice" (09/01/2007)
