New book: Sport, Film and National Culture, edited by Seán  Crosson

This is the first collection dedicated to examining the intersection of sport, film and national culture. Covering films of all types, from Hollywood blockbusters to regional documentaries and newsreels, /Sport, Film, and National Culture/considers how filmic depictions of sport have configured and informed a wide range of distinctive national cultures societies and identities. Featuring case studies from eleven national contexts across six continents – including North and South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Oceania – it reveals the common and contrasting approaches that have emerged within sport cinema in differing national contexts.
