Rugby and the South African Nation: Sport, Cultures, Politics, and Power in the Old and New South Africas
Manchester University Press, 1998 - History - 163 pages
Conventional historical and political analyses of South Africa have frequently neglected the vital role of sport in general, and rugby in particular. This book fills the gap through a critical interpretation of rugby's role in the development of white society, its role in shaping significant social divisions, and its centrality to the apartheid era "power elite".
