The essays collected in Daniel A. Grano & Michael L. Butterworth’s Sport, Rhetoric and Political Struggle contextualize sport and political struggle, examine the mobilization of resistance in sporting contexts, and identify ongoing stigmas that present limitations in and around sport. Judging by Alan Bairner’s review, a more proper title for the book would have been “Sport, Rhetoric and Political Struggle in the US”. Still, our reviewer concludes that the book deserves a wide readership among scholars with an interest in sport and politics.
