About the Author

Molly Wilkinson Johnson earned a Ph.D. in Modern European History from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, in 2003. She is an assistant professor of history at the University of Alabama in Huntsville.


"...eine stringente, kreative und sprachlich klar prasentierte Studie..." H-Soz-u-Kult, Uta Andrea Balbier, German Historical Institute, Washington D.C. 'Molly Wilkinson Johnson has produced a welcome addition to a growing area of scholarship, the history of sport, which itself must be seen in the broader context of a burgeoning literature on the academic study of sport. [...] this book certainly makes a solid contribution to this area of research [...] and it will be of interest to anyone working in the history of sport and the study of state citizen relationships in dictatorship more broadly. Jonathan Crix, Slavic Review, vol. 69, no. 1 (Spring 2010)
