This book sets out a new critical perspective on our understanding of the society and history of the Arab World through the study of sport – an area rarely referred to in literature on the region. The book examines sport in relation to cultural, political and economic changes, including nation-state building, the formation of national identity and international relations in post-colonial context. It also analyzes the commercialization of sport and the growth of sport media broadcasting in
the Arab World. Further information: http://www.palgrave.com/products/title.aspx?pid=521867
