9781566398640: Sportsex

An examination of the landscape of sports writ globally. It explores the way sport allows men and women - but mostly men - to consider their looks, their vitality, and their relationship to their gender in ways that in any other context would be considered taboo. Toby Miller pays particular attention to the way celebrity is considered around the world through a number of different athletic activities. Along the way he also offers his own personal connection to sport as both a researcher and recipient of its abuses and pleasures. In a world where everything is considered in its relationship to globalization, sport is one of the few arenas of social life that can concretely be seen in international terms. This volume seeks to open that world up in a way that is accessible and significant for anyone interested in the shape of our emerging world culture.
