Heritage and Sport: An Introduction is due for release on November 30, 2019. The book is receiving early praise from several notable international scholars:
This engaging and accessible book offers a thought-provoking overview of a subject that continues to grow in both industry and academia. It maps out with clarity, not only the many manifestations of sport related heritage, but also the countless issues and debates that emanate from them. There is little doubt that it will appeal to those who have a passion for sport and/or heritage, as well as to those new to this fascinating area of research. – Sean Gammon, University of Central Lancashire, UK
Studiously researched and richly illustrated with an impressive breadth of case material, Ramshaw offers fascinating insights into a powerful but hitherto much neglected relationship between heritage and sport, striking a fine balance between theoretical and applied insights that will be appreciated by the wide readership that this book deserves – James Higham, University of Otago, New Zealand
This book delivers a richly illustrated and clearly written exploration of the changing dynamics of the heritage field and its relationship to sport. Drawing from diverse understandings of heritage, and with a focus on sporting venues, memorials, sportscapes, memorabilia, events, living heritage, memories and affective experience, the volume interrogates the relationships between heritage and sport in operation across everyday lives, nations and in flow across national boundaries. – Emma Waterton, Western Sydney University, Australia
