Il libro descrive un Paese profondamente iniquo in cui lo sport è specchio fedele di tale deriva. Il cui comitato olimpico, anziché occuparsi del proprio ambito, gestisce l’intero delicatissimo settore sacrificando aspetti come divertimento, uguaglianza, educazione, socializzazione, salute, e lasciando briciole allo sport per tutti.Un Paese il cui sistema sportivo, strumento di propaganda politica e facile preda dei poteri economici, pur essendosi dato un orientamento verticistico, ottiene solo pallidi risultati agonistici e gestionali.Da questo e da una generale assenza di cultura sportiva, si innescano effetti a catena di enorme portata; doping, reclutamento precoce, abbandono giovanile, una popolazione fisicamente passiva e sempre più soggetta al sovrappeso. Eppure, esiste una categoria professionale di cui non si parla ma che costituisce al tempo stesso la soluzione del problema e, paradossalmente, il simbolo della disoccupazione e del precariato; quella dei Laureati in Scienze Motorie. Quel che resta è uno sport nazionale, quindi, svuotato dei suoi significati più autentici ed esclusivamente teso alla produzione di uno mero spettacolo.

Granta Best Young British Novelist Naomi Alderman's The Lessons reflects the truth that the lessons life teaches often come too late. Hidden away in an Oxford back street is a crumbling Georgian mansion, unknown to any but the few who possess a key to its unassuming front gate. Its owner is the mercurial, charismatic Mark Winters, whose rackety trust-fund upbringing has left him as troubled and unpredictable as he is wildly promiscuous. Mark gathers around him an impressionable group of students: glamorous Emmanuella, who always has a new boyfriend in tow; Franny and Simon, best friends and occasional lovers; musician Jess, whose calm exterior hides passionate depths. And James, already damaged by Oxford and looking for a group to belong to. For a time they live in a charmed world of learning and parties and love affairs. But university is no grounding for adult life, and when, years later, tragedy strikes they are entirely unprepared. 'Sharp, funny and poignant' Hilary Mantel 'Funny, tender and insightful' Maureen Lipman, Guardian Naomi Alderman grew up in the Orthodox Jewish community in northwest London. Her first novel, Disobedience, was published in 10 languages and won the Orange Award for New Writers and the Sunday Times Young Writer of the Year prize. Like her second novel, The Lessons, it was broadcast as Radio 4's Book at Bedtime. She is a frequent radio broadcaster and she is a regular contributor to several publications including the Guardian and Prospect. She lives in London.

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) is the nation's oldest civil rights organization, having dedicated itself to the fight for racial equality since 1909. While the group helped achieve substantial victories in the courtroom, the struggle for civil rights extended beyond gaining political support. It also required changing social attitudes. The NAACP thus worked to alter existing prejudices through the production of art that countered racist depictions of African Americans, focusing its efforts not only on changing the attitudes of the white middle class but also on encouraging racial pride and a sense of identity in the black community. Art for Equality explores an important and little-studied side of the NAACP's activism in the cultural realm. In openly supporting African American artists, writers, and musicians in their creative endeavors, the organization aimed to change the way the public viewed the black community. By overcoming stereotypes and the belief of the majority that African Americans were physically, intellectually, and morally inferior to whites, the NAACP believed it could begin to defeat racism. Illuminating important protests, from the fight against the 1915 film The Birth of a Nation to the production of anti-lynching art during the Harlem Renaissance, this insightful volume examines the successes and failures of the NAACP's cultural campaign from 1910 to the 1960s. Exploring the roles of gender and class in shaping the association's patronage of the arts, Art for Equality offers an in-depth analysis of the social and cultural climate during a time of radical change in America.
