Booknews
As European imperialism expanded across the glove, European sports were imported alongside the more commonly studied phenomena of politics, goods, ideas, and customs. Mangan (sport, socialization, and society, U. of Strathclyde, Glasgow) gathers 11 contributions that look at sports in the context of the first phase of globalization (i.e. the rise of the European empires). Topics include the spread of modern sport in Japan, interactions between sports and political ideology in Korea, Asian martial arts in Europe, and the migration of African soccer players to Europe.
