The introduction discusses the ways in which racialization is a gendered experience in theoretical terms. An examination of basketball cultures in South Asian America showcases the ways in which racializations and the responses to racializations involve masculinity while connecting sport in a myriad of ways to the nation and diaspora. The introduction interrogates the conceptions of “manning up” and “browning out” while providing an outline of the book.

Keywords:   masculinity, racialization, South Asian America, basketball
