Beyond C. L. R. James brings together essays analyzing the interconnections among race, ethnicity, and sport. Published in memory of C. L. R. James, the revolutionary sociologist and writer from Trinidad who penned the famous autobiographical account of cricket titled Beyond a Boundary, this collection of essays, many of which originated at the 2010 conference on race and ethnicity in sport at the University of West Indies, Cave Hill in Barbados, cover everything from Aborigines in sport and cricket and minstrel shows in Australia to Zulu stick fighting and football and racism in northern Ireland. The essays, divided into four sections that include introductory comments by each editor, are written by some of the more well-known sport historians in the world and characterized by a focus on the role of culture and sport in society in the context of both political economies and the state as well as colonial and postcolonial struggles. Included also are discussions on how sport at once brings people together, shapes the identities of its participants, and reflects the continuing search for social justice.

Recensioner i media

"An international group of scholars, analyzing a wide range of societies and subcultures, demonstrates how the study of sport provides new and deeper insights into race, ethnicity, gender, assimilation, and intergroup relations. The book, which applies social science theories and methods, will be highly useful to researchers and students in many disciplines." --Stephen H. Norwood, Antisemitism and the American Far Left, The Third Reich in the Ivory Tower, and Real Football "Illuminating .... I learned a lot from these monographs, which were a pleasure to read. I applaud the editors for putting together this excellent collection." --Steven A. Riess in Journal of Sport History, Fall 2015
