Focusing on such varied sites as British cinema, global celebrity, racialized education policy, and Disney, altIgSporting Pedagogies illustrates how trans/national sporting cultures, intermediaries, and institutions actively work as pedagogical sites to hegemonically re-inscribe and re-present neo-liberal discourses on sport, culture, nation, and democracy throughout the ascendant global capitalist order. Written in the progressive tradition of Norman K. Denzin, Henry Giroux, Lawrence Grossberg, and Peter McLaren, Michael D. Giardina poignantly - and at times, devastatingly - captures the shifting terrain of social and political contestation and negotiation at play in the modern world.
