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.
