Maguire argues that the present global sport formation is bound up historically and contemporaneously in exchanges between the West (where dominant forms of modern sport originated) and non-Western societies. In particular, he draws on and develops the figurational concepts of 'diminishing contrasts and increasing varieties', 'commingling' and r relations', to emphasise the relatively unplanned, multifaceted, multidirectional nature of globalisation and the complex power balances that characterise the global sport process.

The social significance of sport at both local and global levels has become apparent through theoretical concern with sporting identities. On a global level, Maguire (1999) argues that the West has been attracted to ‘non-achievement’ sports activities such as martial arts or extreme sports. See. for example: Messner and Sabo, 1990; MacClancy, 1996; Coakly and Donnelly, 1999; Mckay, Messner and Sabo, 2000. He sees the existence of extreme sports as a challenge to the dominant achievement sports ideology as evidence of the fact that global processes are characterised by diversity, not the replication of uniformity.
