The race to transform: Sport in post-apartheid South Africa

Paperback / softback
Takes stock of sport in South Africa, providing an exploration of how sport reflects matters such as enduring inequality, racial transformation and the making (or otherwise) of a common South African destiny. This book provides a view on the relationship between elite and grassroots sport in the context of growing economic disparities and the emergence of an influential black middle and super-rich class. The contributors outline an agenda for both theory and practice in the ongoing debate about sport and transformation in South Africa.
