Pan-Asian Sport And The Emergence Of Modern Asia, 1913-1974 by Huebner, Stefan
The first major study of the history of sports across Asia, this book reveals how the history of regional sporting events in Asia during the twentieth century can be read as a staging of power relations both within Asia and between Asia and the West. Looking specifically at the Far Eastern Championship Games that began in 1913, the Western Asiatic Games of 1934, and the early Asian Games of 1951-74, Stefan Huebner describes how 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. Based on a vast range of archival materials, this book shows how sporting events helped shape anti-colonial sentiments, Asian nationalisms, and cultural aspirations in places such as the Philippines, China, Japan, India, Indonesia, Thailand, and Iran.
