‘Race’, Youth Sport, Physical Activity and Health provides a resource that addresses ‘race’ and racism in an accessible way by contextualizing theory with practical evidence-based examples drawn from global geographical and cultural settings.

Thisis the first book to focus on issues of ‘race’ and racism in youth sport, physical activity and health. Drawing on critical race theory, intersectionality and post-feminism, and presenting a range of international empirical case studies, it explores racialization processes in pedagogical and non-pedagogical settings. The book examines how ‘race’ and racism in pedagogical settings shape young peoples’ dispositions towards participation in sport and physical activity, and how identity discourses are being shaped in contemporary sport, physical activity and health.

Essential reading for anybody working in sport and exercise studies, physical education, sociology or health studies.
