Product Description

About the Author

Lincoln Allison has combined an academic career in the study of politics with more general writing for newspapers and magazines. What he enjoyed about academic life was playing for the university staff cricket team and the company of clever young people. What he didn't like was the departmentalisation and bureaucratisation of knowledge and having to write for academic journals. He retired from full-time academic work in 2004 though remains Emeritus Reader in Politics at the University of Warwick and Visiting Professor in the politics of sport at the University of Brighton. He is the author or editor of more than a dozen books on political philosophy, the politics of the environment, sport and travel. The best known are probably Amateurism in Sport and the edited book The Politics of Sport and its sequels. He lives in Leamington Spa with his wife Ann as do two of his three sons and both his granddaughters.
