Filling a gap in the literature on the history of sport in Europe, the book brings together complementary studies on diverse aspects of the interrelation between sport and urban space. Going from geography to political science, from sports history to urban and transport history, it suggests a three-fold approach. A first thematic group of researches ranges around "Sport Development and Urban Spaces", exploring the impact of the city on the rise of sport. A second focal point is related to "Sport Policies and Local Identities" with a special attention given to the making of sport venues and competitions in the making of urban identity. A third thematic group includes studies on "Sport Facilities, Engineers and Workers". The articulation of the three parts builds a unique contribution to the process of identity making at a European level. [less ▲]

Organising an outdoor event in a venue which has been assigned as a National Park is subject to a far greater number of constraints than in a non-protected area. By using the example of the ultramarathon races across Reunion Island since 1989, this study aims at analysing the history of the event’s ecological policies with regard to the special vulnerability of the region, and the changes in status of the concerned landscapes and tourism strategies. The method embraces a study of the existing litera¬ture on the history of both the event’s organisation and the island’s environmental policies over the past 24 years, combined with a press content analysis. The results demonstrate that the creation of a National Park in 2007 and the nomi¬na¬tion of large parts of Reunion Island as UNESCO World Natural Heritage sites in 2010 indeed led to further nature conservation policies which were, from then on, followed empathically in order to harmonise ideas of nature conservation and event organisation.

Previous works on German-French relationships in the sporting press prove that a time of open hostility in both countries until 1928 was followed in the mid-1930s by admiration of the French observers towards Germany, whereas the Germans showed arrogance or indifference when mentioning France. Yet the exact turn in these media representations remains underexplored and suggests focusing on the Olympic Games of Los Angeles in 1932. At this time the contraction of the money supply, loss of purchasing power, unemployment and bankruptcies visited most of the industrialised world and led to a depression. How far did these events impact the respective representations of ‘the other’ in France’s and Germany’s discourses on sport during the summer of 1932? This question is in the focus of a press analysis based on a selection of French and German sport and generalist newspapers. It comes out that the press accounts of the 1932 Olympics reflected the ongoing process of redefining the relationship between France and Germany in a time of transition. [less ▲]
