My forays into sport history in general and Sporting Traditions are in search of papers that are critical interrogatives to sit alongside similarly oriented sociology papers. As such, I have acquired several works by Booth and Tatz especially since my principal interest is with the politics of ‘race’ and racialised identities, and I have the highest regard for their work in this domain. I was specifically asked to comment on the strengths of the volume for history and sociology, but I will contain my response to sociology – or more specifically, sports sociology.
