The social dimension of sports clubs : building networks of sports partners against discrimination.; "This work presents the main contributions and considerations of young European research workers and journalists on the question of discrimination in sport. Taking a multidisciplinary approach to the social sciences, the authors show how the media and those working in media can act as a relay, through their coverage of sports, for initiatives on the fight against discrimination. They also illustrate in detail not only the reality of discrimination in sport and the controversy surrounding this issue in the member states of the Council of Europe, but also the strength of research incipient in this field." -- Publisher.
