Sports have always been regarded as a source of entertainment, unity, and a symbol of human achievement. However, behind the glitz and glamour of the sports industry lies a complex web of political maneuverings and harmful practices. The Palgrave Handbook Of Sport Politics And Harm delves deep into this hidden world, offering a comprehensive analysis of the political dynamics and harmful consequences prevalent in the realm of sports.

Unveiling the Darker Side of Sports

The Palgrave Handbook Of Sport Politics And Harm is an enlightening collection of essays and research papers contributed by leading scholars and experts in the field of sports politics. The book provides an in-depth exploration of the various ways in which politics and harm intersect in the sporting world, examining issues that range from corruption and violence to discrimination and exploitation.

The Power Play of Politics

One of the key focuses of this handbook is the influence of politics on sports. With financial interests, national pride, and political agendas at stake, the world of sports has become a battleground for power struggles between governments, corporations, and international governing bodies. This book offers a critical examination of the role of politics in shaping the direction of sports events, policies, and regulations.

Corruption and Scandals

No discussion of sports politics is complete without delving into the realm of corruption and scandals. The Palgrave Handbook Of Sport Politics And Harm exposes the underbelly of the sports industry, shedding light on instances of match-fixing, bribery, and illicit financial practices. Through an exploration of real-life case studies, the book demonstrates the detrimental effects of corruption on the integrity of sports and the trust of fans worldwide.

The Impact on Athletes and Society

While the power struggles and corruption within the sports industry are important issues on their own, they also have a direct impact on athletes and society at large. The Palgrave Handbook Of Sport Politics And Harm addresses the long-lasting consequences faced by athletes who become pawns in the political game, as well as the broader socio-cultural implications of sports-related harm. From doping scandals to the exploitation of athletes, this book sheds light on the dark side of the industry.

Seeking Solutions and a Better Future

Although the handbook draws attention to the negative aspects of sports politics, its ultimate goal is to foster change and pave the way for a better future. By analyzing the harmful practices that persist, the book provides valuable insights and recommendations for policymakers, sports organizations, and governing bodies to address these issues effectively. Through collective action, it aims to protect the integrity of sports and ensure the well-being of athletes and the wider society.

The Palgrave Handbook Of Sport Politics And Harm offers an eye-opening exploration of the hidden world behind sports. Its comprehensive analysis of politics, corruption, and harm in the sporting realm provides a valuable resource for scholars, students, and anyone interested in understanding the complex dynamics at play. By shining a light on these issues, this handbook ignites a necessary conversation about the need for transparency, accountability, and ethical practices in the world of sports.

This book looks historically at the harm that has been inflicted in the practice of sport and at some of the issues, debates and controversies that have arisen as a result. Written by experts in history, sociology, sport journalism and public health, the book considers sport and injury in relation to matters of social class; gender; ethnicity and race; sexuality; political ideology and national identity; health and wellbeing; childhood; animal rights; and popular culture. These matters are, in turn, variously related to a range of sports, including ancient, pre- and early industrial sports; American football; boxing; wrestling and other combat sports; mountaineering; horseracing; cycling; motor racing; rugby football; cricket; association football; baseball; basketball; Crossfit; ice hockey; Olympic sports; Mixed Martial Arts; and sport in an imagined dystopian future.
