Über diesen Titel
Sport has a huge social and cultural significance in contemporary Britain. This insightful study provides the first exploration of the causes and consequences of the increased interaction between sport and the state since 1945.
Kevin Jefferys sets policy towards sport within the evolving socio-political context of post-war Britain and balances an appreciation of continuity and change from the 'austerity Games' of 1948 through to the multi-billion pound extravaganza of the London 2012 Olympics. Ideal for students, historians, social scientists and sport enthusiasts alike, Sport and Politics in Modern Britain provides the fullest assessment yet of this important topic, bringing sport sharply into focus as a contested domain in public and political debate.
KEVIN JEFFERYS Professor of Contemporary History at Plymouth University, UK. His publications include works of political history such as Retreat from New Jerusalem: British Politics, 1951-1964 (in the British Studies series), and he has also published articles on sporting themes in the journals Sport in History and the International Journal of the History of Sport.
