“Nation, City, Arena: Sports Events, Nation Building and City Politics in Indonesia”

 
NIAS Press is delighted to have recently published Friederike Trotier’s book “Nation, City, Arena: Sports Events, Nation Building and City Politics in Indonesia”.

This book is the first comprehensive study of international multi-sport events in Indonesia since 1962. It explores the role of sports events have in national and city politics and in the country’s transformation from a highly centralized to a decentralized one.  “Nation, City, Arena”  focuses on the nexus between sport, the nation, city politics and place marketing.
