Over the course of two centuries since the emergence of modern sport, a series of structured processes that characterize contemporary global sport have emerged. These processes flow from a blend of intended and unintended social actions that are embedded in a network of complex power relations. Power and Global Sport explores global sport and the power relationships associated with sport in local, national and international contexts. Through investigation of central themes such as global governance, local identity and media representation, Maguire identifies key 'structured processes' that have shaped the global development of sport. The analysis offers an important account both of how globalization is shaping contemporary sport, and of the role that sport plays in globalization.Maguire, Joseph is the author of 'Power And Global Sport Zones Of Prestige, Emulation And Resistance', published 2005 under ISBN 9780415252805 and ISBN 0415252806.
