    The role of sport in society – in different contexts and at different levels

    In an edited volume by Danyel Reiche & Tamir Sorek, Sport. Politics, and Society in the Middle East (Hurst Publishers), ten contributors in as many chapters discuss the intersection of political and cultural processes related to sport in the region. Dan-Erik Andersson is pleased to find a book that shares his views on the role of sport in society, although he would have liked to see a commonality in the contributions beyond geographic locality.
