The Race Game: Sport and Politics in South Africa

Front Cover
Psychology Press, 1998 - Political Science - 250 pages
In this book Douglas Booth takes a fresh look at the role of sport in fostering a new national identity in South Africa. Sport remains an integral element of post-apartheid politics. State president Nelson Mandela and his government believe that sport can unite black and white South Africans and contribute to social and political change. But through careful analysis Booth argues that sport will never unite South Africans except in the most fleeting and superficial manner.
