"Sport is a vital part of our daily lives and culture, but it is also a multi-million pound industry; it plays an important role in the functioning of many communities, but it is also crucial for the international entertainment network. Andrew Blake examines the tensions between these different areas, arguing that the body should be placed at the centre of all sporting discourses." "A critical look at sport can illuminate a whole range of issues - identity and nationality, design, performance, representation and aesthetics - and all these are explored in this innovative book, which opens up a whole new area of research and cultural criticism."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Rethinking Race, Politics, and Poetics offers a critical appraisal of C.L.R. James as a major twentieth-century activist-intellectual, exploring his prolific output spanning decades within genres as diverse as history, philosophy, sociology, literary and cultural criticism, prose fiction, and reportage. The book also analyzes some of the flaws and contradictions that surfaced within James’ writings as a consequence of the difficult circumstances in which he worked and lived as an itinerant migrant intellectual invariably involved with fringe political groups. Assessing James as a lifelong committed Marxist and humanist, the book argues that his core concern with racial, political, and cultural questions as central to human and social understanding led him to develop a distinctive critique of the modern world.

Instructors: Please click here to request a review copy of this title for adoption consideration. Desk copies are available by calling 1-800-818-7243. Where are we at with studies of Body & Society? What are the key accomplishments in the field? This book provides the clearest and most comprehensive account of work in this area to date. Featuring a series of studies on sport, transgenderism, migration, illness, survival and belief, it illuminates the relationship between bodily change and action. Chris Shilling's book provides an unrivalled survey of theory and empirical research and explores the hitherto neglected tradition of American 'body studies'. Wide in scope, systematic and incisive the book represents a landmark addition to the field of studies in body and society. 'In this new book, Chris Shilling once again seeks to redefine the parameters of the sociology of the body. Drawing on the ideas of pragmatism and the social research of the Chicago school, Shilling analyses many of the contemporary crises and transitions that challenge embodied habit and character, concluding that in many cases embodied individuals find the creative capacity for transcendence of their current social and material contexts. This is essential reading for all those in search of a sophisticated theoretical and methodological basis for the study of embodied action that resists a simplistic 'inverted Cartesianism' - Dr Ian Burkitt, University of Bradford

The Olympic Games symbolize global cooperation, international understanding and the bonding of individuals through sports. However, throughout the history of the modern games, the Olympic ideal has often been confronted by a different reality. Crises ranging from drug abuse to racism and accusations of Disneyfication have threatened the spirit of Olympism and even the Games themselves. Post-Olympism? is the first book to provide a useful overview of the ongoing significance of the Olympics. Is Olympism relevant today? Have more frequent and tightly organized events such as World Cups and world championships superseded the Olympics to become the great festivals of sport? What effect will new technologies have on the Games? This is a timely book that both re-evaluates this event's checkered past and assesses whether it has a future.
