dc.description.abstractIntroduction: The Routledge Adolescence and Society Series includes an edited collection entitled Young People’s Involvement in Sport (Kremer et al., 1997). On its cover is a photograph of six young lads wearing soccer kit in what looks as though it might be a training session (but probably isn’t). One of the lads is white; the others are from minority ethnic groups. The rest of the book has 269 pages of text, yet there is barely a mention of race, racism(s), ethnicity or specific ethnic groups. The paradox is not merely a matter of choosing an appropriate image for marketing a book; it is a reflection of the neglect of race and ethnicity in the discourses around youth sport more generally. For though there have been some important contributions to the sports studies literature linked to ethnicity before and since, this element of the topic of youth sport remains relatively under-researched and therefore insufficiently understood.en_US
