In Black and Asian Athletes in British Sport and Society Patrick Ismond begins by exploring the ways in which a resurgence of ideas about genetics and heredity has helped to sustain the radialised practices that sometimes show themselves in traditionally masculine sports. The racism experiences by minority ethnic athletes in sport over the last century is related to wider social events, thereby emphasising how British sport has acted as a barometer for tensions over race, and national identity. This book discusses how (if at all) the interviewees identify and consider racism in sport. This is discussed in relation to ethnicity, identity, and notions of Englishness and Britishness. It is argued that the place of minority ethnic women in British sport has been obscured. The detailed, individual accounts of their sporting experiences highlight how the significance attached to sport varies according to a person's biography.
