The book evaluates and demonstrates the main approaches to transnational and comparative analysis of sports policy
The aim of the book is to develop typology which can be adopted to help re-establish important transnational and comparative research which considers the occurrence of Orientalism common to a large amount of Western investigation and the significance of the 'local' rhetoric compared to the 'global'
This book could be an important reading for graduate students and educators in the sport -related fields especially for those interested in the affects of globalisation, governance and politics in sport
It is divided into 9 chapters within three parts: part 1 is the review of theoretical perspectives and methodologies by discussing relevant assumptions in three chapters; Part 2 provides case studies of transnational and comparative analysis of sports policy in five chapters; Part 3 deals with interculturalism in policy analysis by focusing on methodological pluralism and ethical discourse in one chapter
This is a constructive and comprehensive reading for anyone interested in addressing the matter of how social, cultural and political views in global sense effect sport issues
