Sports have become an international spectacle that influences the nations' foreign policy, world economies, and region...al morale. Hundreds of billions of dollars are at stake as governments and multinational corporations rush to make sure they have a place at the table. And yet, sports come from humble beginnings.

Each chapter features one sport and details that sport's origins, global migration, economic forces, media influences, political environment, pop-culture inspirations, scandalous moments, and key individuals. Sports history is a tapestry of sociological variables; Modern Sports Around the World weaves them together to create a unique history book that explains not only where humanity has been, but where it might be going.
