    “This book extends and expands our knowledge of how racism occurs and how it can be challenged”

    In Racism and English Football: For Club and Country (Routledge), Daniel Burdsey analyses the contemporary manifestations, outcomes and implications of the fractious relationship between English professional football and race.

    Football Fanatics: Explanatory Hypotheses, Developments, and Possible Threats for The Beautiful Game

    Although football is the greatest cultural phenomenon of our time, reflexive contributions digging into the possible reasons why we love football, whether football is important, and seemingly threats for the position of football as a globally loved game, are somewhat scarce.

    Social sporting innovations from Hogwarts to Bruges

    With her new anthology, Social Innovation in Sport (Palgrave Macmillan), Anne Tjönndal aims at providing fresh insights on how social innovations are utilized as strategies to make sport more accessible and inclusive. Our reviewer Alan Bairner is doubtful however, seeing sport’s adaptability to change as more often than not driven by market logics, since sport, he claims, is inherently conservative, reactionary even, in its refusal to change its core values and renew its traditional hierarchies.
