...provides a powerful model of how sports are a significant marker of modernity...resonates beyond the subject matter to explore new directions in diplomacy and modern East-West relations." - American Historical Review "presents a salient intersection between Asian Studies, sports studies and world history. It not only underlines the significance of sports in the context of decolonisation, nation-building and pan-Asian ideas in Asia; it also reflects the power relations between Asia and the West and the motivation of different stakeholders in politics and sports" - Journal of Southeast Asian Studies "The significance of this splendid book surpasses by far the history of sports. Based on a huge documentation in several languages including Japanese, Stefan Huebner provides a unique history of internationalism and identity formation in twentieth-century Asia." - Jurgen Osterhammel, University of KonstanzReseña del editor:
The history of regional sporting events in 20th-century Asia yields insights into Western and Asian perspectives on what defines modern Asia, and can be read as a staging of power relations in Asia and between Asia and the West. The Far Eastern Championship Games began in 1913, and were succeeded after the Pacific War by the Asian Games. Missionary groups and colonial administrations viewed sporting success not only as a triumph of physical strength and endurance but also of moral education and social reform. Sporting competitions were to shape a "new Asian man" and later a "new Asian woman" by promoting internationalism, egalitarianism and economic progress, all serving to direct a "rising" Asia toward modernity. Over time, exactly what constituted a "rising" Asia underwent remarkable changes, ranging from the YMCA's promotion of muscular Christianity, democratization, and the social gospel in the US-colonized Philippines to Iranian visions of recreating the Great Persian Empire. Based on a vast range of archival materials and spanning 60 years and 3 continents, Pan-Asian Sports and the Emergence of Modern Asia shows how pan-Asian sporting events helped shape anti-colonial sentiments, Asian nationalisms, and pan-Asian aspirations in places as diverse as Japan and Iran, and across the span of countries lying between them.
