Race and Sport in Canada
Written by a collection of emerging and established scholars, this book is broadly organized around three interrelated areas: historical approaches to the study of race and sport in Canada; Canadian immigration and the study of race and sport; and the study of race and sport beyond Canada's borders. Within these themes, a variety of relevant topics are discussed, including black football players in twentieth-century Canada, the structural barriers to sports participation faced by immigrants arriving to Atlantic Canada, and NCAA scholarships and Canadian athletes.
Race and Sport in Canada will be of interest to the general reader as well as to instructors and students in the fields of sport studies, sociology, critical race studies, cultural studies, and education.
“This book provides a range of methodological approaches and covers a number of sports, geographic areas, and racial/ethnic/cultural groups. This is very useful for the purposes of undergraduate teaching.”
Danielle Deveau, Simon Fraser University
“The range of chapters [in Race and Sport in Canada] are certainly an excellent reflection of important ‘cases’ that need to be considered in the current movement.”
