"A wonderful read for and about sports’s observers, participants, scholars, and fans. With a wide variety of approaches ranging from media analysis to autoethnography, this collection of smart and accessible essays provides a great model for thinking about sports—and through sports about ethnicity, race, and gender in specific local, transnational, and historical contexts."
—Erica Rand, author of Red Nails, Black Skates: Gender, Cash, and Pleasure On and Off the Ice
"Sports is one of the most important arenas of socialization and popular culture, and Asian Americans have often been seen as having a disjunctive or non-existent relationship to it. This sui generis collection shows in unexpected and startling ways how a long but under-examined history of Asian American sporting culture—from participation and competition to spectatorship and fandom—fundamentally reshapes allegories of national belonging and race at the heart of athletics."
—David L. Eng, University of Pennsylvania
