"Basing his arguments and analyses largely on a judicious use of the theories of Elias, Joseph Maguire succeeds in Global Sport in shedding new and original light on this important but neglected aspect of globalization. Not least among the merits of his path-breaking text are the ways in which he shows, first, that globalization, including the globalization of sport, is far from being the recent development that many people take it to be, and second, that this process deserves far more attention than it has received up to now. Global Sport is an excellent book which deserves to sell very well." Eric Dunning, University of Leicester
In his major new work, Joseph Maguire develops a path-breaking account of sport in a global context, examining the changing nature of sport in relation to globalisation.
