Sport heritage is increasingly being recognised as a potent instigator of tourism; be it touring a historic stadium, visiting a sports hall of fame, or participating in a sport fantasy camp, tourists now have a vast array of locations and options to experience the sporting past. This book provides the first comprehensive resource on sport heritage as a tourist attraction. Using theoretical and applied studies from researchers in the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Canada, the United States, Australia, and New Zealand, this book finds that the sporting past is a key component in tourism's future.
The convergence of heritage, sport and tourism involves many different and diverse fields, including sport tourism, heritage tourism, sport management, and sports geography. This book will serve the needs of students, researchers, industry practitioners in these fields, as well as those interested in sport heritage as a tourist attraction.
This book was first published as a special issue of the Journal of Sport Tourism.
There's just too much black history to think you could ever know enough. Did you ever think that African-American history began in America? Ever wonder about the thousands of years when African Kings and Queens ruled vast empires and kingdoms with wealth beyond measure? Ever wonder why the enslavement of African people was so successful? Never be too sure you know the answer to that question. Sure, you've heard of the Underground Railroad, but what about the Middle Passage? How much do you know about HBCUs, the Divine Nine, or the Harlem Renaissance? Did you ever think about just how many black actors, athletes, comedians, composers, dancers, and writers there are? Did you know that there were organizations specifically for black cardiologists, dentists, film makers, lawyers, journalists, physicists, pilots, publishers, psychiatrists, stock brokers, and many other professions? After reading the 6 essays and completing the 25 puzzles in this book, you will find yourself wanting to know more and creating your own topics and categories. Why? Because . There's just too much black history to think you could ever know enough.
This book presents novel applications of nanotechnology for the preservation of artistic and historical artifacts. It explains the scientific principles behind numerous nanomaterials and discusses their applications to different types of common movable and fixed artistic substrates. It starts with an overview of the nano-tools developed over the last three decades, such as dispersions of nanoparticles, micellar solutions, microemulsions and gels. Compared to traditional methods, these new tools have the benefit of considerably less impact on both the operators and the environment. Each chapter is dedicated to a specific type of cultural heritage material (wall and easel paintings, stone, paper, canvas and wood) starting with the main degradation paths and discussing protocols for the application of innovative nanomaterials-based tools for cleaning, consolidation, or deacidification, which represent the majority of the case studies encountered in restoration facilities, workshops and ateliers. The book provides step-by-step descriptions that are meant to support conservators in the application of these novel materials and methods. The aim of the book is to equip end-users and conservators with essential information and knowledge on the availability and applicability of different nano-materials and dispersed systems. While the book's focus is on the practical aspects, interested readers will also find references to the relevant advanced colloid and material science literature.
Main audience: Expert conservators, restorers and technical staff at conservation institutes and museums, students at conservation and restoration schools, and scientists who are new to the field of conservation of artistic and historical artifacts.

Sinachi Ukpabi has been privileged to meet with a wide spectrum of peoples in different parts of the world. In the course of these interactions, he observed that many still know a little about the rich African history and heritage, despite the presence of modern literature and Information and Communication Technology. Realizing the near futility of trying to personally 'educate' the world about his ancestry, race and culture via one-on-one interactions and the near absence of African writers in major American bookstores, he embarked on this project. In The Return, Ukpabi follows in the footsteps of his literary 'Umuahian' forbears like Chinua Achebe, Pius Okigbo, Chukwuemeka Ike, Elechi Amadi, Ken Saro-Wiwa and Obi Nwakanma. He attempts to capture the struggle of the African in the post-colonial 20th century global society, through the experience of Nnaka Alozie, a young man of the Igbo tribe of West Africa. It tells of his travails in the first 30 years of independent Nigeria and his relationship with Claire, a British girl within the complex matrix of interracial marriage, civil war, race relations and cultural heritage, sequel to his audacious quest for the white man's education. The book volume has been intentionally reduced and an attempt made to write in fast-paced but flowing language to also appeal to the 'twitter' and 'face-book' generation.
