            The Viking Age - between 750 and 1050 - saw an unprecedented expansion of the Scandinavian peoples. As traders and raiders, explorers and colonists, they reshaped the world between eastern North America and the Asian steppe. For a millennium, though, their history has largely bee...n filtered through the writings of their victims. Based on the latest archaeological and textual evidence, Children of Ash and Elm tells the story of the Vikings on their own terms: their politics, their cosmology, their art and culture. From Bjoern Ironside, who led an expedition to sack Rome, to Gudrid Thorbjarnardottir, the most travelled woman in the world, Price shows us the real Vikings, not the caricatures they have become in popular culture and history.

            Race, Ethnicity and the Sport Media

            Due to its multi-ethnic character and popularity, television coverage of sport can contribute to people's beliefs and ideas about race and ethnicity. This role of the sport media is however often overlooked or downplayed by the general public, by policy makers and by many scholar...s. This book addresses this neglect and discusses the often taken-for-granted assumptions that are embedded in the use of racial/ethnic meanings and categorizations by soccer commentators on television and by sport media audiences. Although the Dutch context serves as a reference point for the research project, the findings are placed in a broader societal and internationally comparative perspective. In addition to a focus on the sport media, the author critically reflects on the use and definitions of race and ethnicity in international sport media research and Dutch sport policy. A recurring theme in this book is the interplay between discourses as they are articulated in sport-related cultural practices and the rest of society. Drawing on key concepts from cultural studies, race theorists and sport and media scholars, the author shows how racialized power relations in society are played out in sport-related cultural practices and how sportrelated cultural practices in turn have the potential to reinforce but also challenge racialized power relations outside of sport. In addition to this, the book offers suggestions for alternative ways of using the concepts of race and ethnicity by those who shape sport policy agendas and those who conduct critical sport media research.
