Product description

Review

A very rich, readable, and revealing account of connections between different actors, institutions, and government agencies. The first major contribution to the history of sport across Asia. --John Sidel, London School of Economics"

Huebner s imaginative, interesting, and important book shows how the concept of Asia was shaped by international sports. This is the first book on the history, in the true sense of the word, of Asian sports. --Takashima Ko, Kyoto University"

An important missing piece in Asia's history, this book demonstrates how sport played a pivotal role in shaping modern Asia. Scholars of Olympism and mega events will also find answers to a long unsolved riddle in sporting history. --Boria Majumdar, co-author of Olympics: The India Story"

The book represents a valuable and original contribution not only to the Asian history, but also to the history of international relations in the twentieth century as well as to the emerging field of the transnational history of sports.
--Harald Fischer-Tine, ETH Zurich"

Focusing on regional Asian sports events, Huebner s work makes a great contribution to the study of the entanglements between national and transnational as well as political and intellectual history in that region. --Dominic Sachsenmaier, University of Goettingen"

Huebner uses sports as a lens through which Asia is interrogated. This work is ambitious in scope, and painstaking in its execution, offering a systematic approach to examining Asian Games, backed up with an impressive multi-archival research around the world.
--Naoko Shimazu, Yale-NUS, Singapore"
