E-Book The Real and the Unreal (PDF version)


First published in 2007, The Real and the Unreal: Hyper Narratives of Indigenous Athletes and the Changing Significance of Race has been republished in 2019. The PDF version is available for purchase here on my  website. Paperback and kindle versions are available on Amazon. The 2019 publication differs to the 2015 publication which includes an extended preface.

Race is said to be irrelevant conceptually. Drawing on the notion of race formations (evolutionary hegemony) this book engages with the changing significance of race through an examination of contemporary narratives depicting indigenous efficacy for sport in popular print content.
