    The International Journal of the History of Sport, Volume 38, 2021, Issue 18 | Asian Journal of Sport History & Culture, 2021, 3. Special Issue: Olympics

    The International Journal of the History of Sport is the world’s leading sport history academic periodical with fully-refereed global coverage of the subject.

    The anti-Olympic resistance movement

    While the Tokyo Olympics is in full (well…) swing, maybe it’s time to study Nolympcs. Jens Ljunggren has read two books with a Games-critical perspective, NOlympians: Inside the Fight Against Capitalist Mega-Sports in Los Angeles, Tokyo and Beyond by Jules Boykoff, and NOlympics: Tokyo 2020/1 in der Kritik, editid by Steffi Richter, Andreas Singler & Dorothea Mladenova. Our reviewer points out the obvious risks involved when activists research their own movement and write its history.

    Fyllig, faktarik och fördjupad historik över fotbollsvärldsmästerskapen

    Ett nyligt gräv bland gamla recensionsböcker frambringade vad som närmast får betraktas som ett fotbollshistoriskt fynd. 2014 utgavs The FIFA World Cup 1930–2010: Politics, Commerce, Spectacle and Identities, sammanställd av Stefan Rinke & Kay Schiller (Wallstein Verlag). Birger Hedén hade turen att få recensionsexemplaret av boken, och han använde det väl.
