‘Sport Locked Down.’ My Foreword to ‘The Erosion of the American Sporting Ethos … Reconsidered’, by J.N. Rosen, published by TSI Press on 1 January 2021.

This work examines American sport from its traditional roots to the influence of the 1960s-era counterculture and the rise of a post-Cold War ethos that reinterprets competition as a relic of a misbegotten past and anathema to American life. My foreword also considers how sport has been managed internationally in response to the COVID-19 virus.
