This book explores the role of sport within the context of South Asian Society. Academics have largely overlooked this fascinating discussion and this collection of essays seeks to remedy this oversight. It reveals that sport can not only be used in many instances as a barometer of the political dynamics of society and a reflection of South Asian culture, it has also influenced these structures.For example, in many instances traditional notions of class divides and gender roles are challenged and subverted in sport, making its role and contribution to the fabric of South Asian society extremely valuable. Furthermore, this book should provide the scope to draw together historians and other scholars to examine methodological issues as well as particular case studies and narratives examining different comprehensions of 'sport'. This book is a special issue of the journal 'the International Journal of the History of Sport'.
