Shortly after the conclusion of the Women's World Cup earlier this summer, a friend suggested to me that it signaled the long-awaited arrival of soccer as a mainstream sport in the U. I thought a second, remembering the commercials around the game and the way the television cameras shot the crowd. Then I responded that I thought it wasn't really the long-awaited arrival of soccer, but the emergence of women's sports into the mainstream of American culture.
This is something of an exaggeration. But the summer of the World Cup is perhaps a perfect time to think through the position of women's sports in global society. Nancy Lough and Andrea N. Lough and Guerin bring together forty different authors to survey the status of women's sports in The essays range from discussions of the history of women's sports to analyses of media representation of women in sports to the economics and management of women's sports.
Collectively, it is a remarkable accomplishment. Lough and Guerin offer a comprehensive survey of the field while pointing to future questions and topics of research. Identity, Diaspora and Citizenship 6. The popularity of these activities goes beyond the teenage male youth that the media typify as their main consumers.

The cultural ubiquity, political prominence and economic significance of contemporary sport in global capitalist society present fertile terrain for its critical socio-cultural analysis. Foremost in this scholarship are marxist and cultural studies approaches.

Sport, Labour and Representation Its polemical discussion brought sports as cultural politics into the academic arena and set the agenda for a new wave of researchers. Since the s sport studies has matured both as an academic discipline and as a focus for mainstream political and public policy debate. In Culture, Politics and Sport: Blowing the Whistle, Revisited, Garry Whannel revisits the themes that led his first edition, assessing their s context from our new millennium perspective, and exploring their continued relevance for contemporary sports academics.

How can the study of local football culture help us to understand the powerful international forces at play within the modern game? Based on long-term and detailed ethnographic research, this book uses Malta as a critical case study to explore the dynamics of contemporary football.
Situated on the fringes of the EU, and with an appalling record in international competition, the Maltese are nevertheless fanatical about the game. Like many other contemporary sporting institutions, the Paralympic Games have made the transition from pastime to spectacle, and the profile of athletes with disabilities has been increased as a result. This book reviews the current status of the Paralympics and challenges the mainstream assumption that the Games are a vehicle for empowerment of the disabled community.
Using ethnographic methods unique in this area of study, P. David Howe has undertaken an innovative and critical examination of the social, political and economic processes shaping the Paralympic Movement. In The Cultural Politics of the Paralympic Movement he presents his findings and offers a new insight into the relationship between sport, the body and the culture of disability. In doing so he has produced the most comprehensive and radical text about high performance sport for the disabled yet published. A Social History of Sport for the Disabled 3.
The Politics of Sporting Disablement 5. The Imperfect Body and Sport 7.
Technology and the Paralympic Games 8. Accommodating Paralympic Bodies. In this important new book the focus is on one particular form of sound, music. In some sports, such as ice skating, music is essential. In other sports music is incidental, yet it is present and has an acknowledged, significant effect on sporting performance and on the experience of sport. Because of the multifaceted interface of music and sport the book embraces a broad and pluralistic definition of music. The relative absence of music in Sports Studies is a serious academic oversight given the vital role of music in the performance, reception and commodification of sport.
This collection represents an important and original contribution to the field but will also be of interest to scholars working in music, anthropology and cultural studies. Edited by Michael Giardina, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, USA and Michele Donnelly, McMaster University, Canada Youth Culture and Sport critically interrogates and challenges contemporary articulations of race, class, gender, and sexual relations circulating throughout popular iterations of youth sporting culture in late-capitalism.

This is a topical new book critically analyzing the significance of football in German sporting and cultural life. Consequently, sport makes for a compelling film narrative and films, in turn, are a vivid medium for sport. Yet despite its regularity as a central theme in motion pictures, constructions and representations of sport and athletes have been marginalised in terms of serious analysis within the longstanding academic study of films and documentaries.
In this collection, it is the critical study of film and its connections to sport that are examined. The collection is one of the first of its kind to examine the ways in which sport has been used in films as a metaphor for other areas of social life. This is a timely collection that draws together a diverse range of accessible, insightful and ground-breaking new essays. China is poised to gain global importance as a growth engine for the world economy on a par with Europe and the USA. It is at the juncture of the growing impact of China-related activities of Japanese corporations on the transformation of Japanese management philosophies, on the one hand, and the transformation of the Japanese economy more generally, on the other, that this book is situated.
As a relatively small geographical entity, Ireland, north and south, has produced a disproportionately high number of world class sports men and women who have excelled at the highest levels of their chosen sport. The significance of sport in Ireland though extends far beyond the achievements of such individuals. Thousands also leave the country every weekend between August and May to express their affinity for various Scottish and English soccer teams.
As Japanese corporations re-align activities to increasingly accommodate the growing importance of China as a business location, inter-regional expansion will integrate more deeply the Chinese economy within their global strategies, business structures and decision-taking. The book sheds light on the implications for European businesses and policy-makers of the consequences of deepening integration of these two economic powerhouses. This book seeks to address the ways in which Irish aptitude and ebullience for sport has manifested itself in those parts of the world that have or have had relatively large Irish communities.
Since the s, however, much has changed, and this special issue of the International Journal of the History of Sport re-examines the position of sport in the hearts and minds of Australians, comparing the cultural history and analysis that emerged from the original classic text with the subsequent developments that have at once transformed Australian sport and established certain unchangeable qualities within it.

The Origins of Football Management 2. The Pioneers, 3. The Emergence of the Football Manager, 5. The Modernisation of Football Management, 6. Managers in the Television Age, 7. Edited by Paul Gilchrist, University of Brighton, UK and Russell Holden, University of Wales Institute, UK Whether on the field of play, in stadia, or on the streets, sport has consistently brought together disparate individuals to share culture, values and memories.
Nowadays these relationships are being rewritten through the effects of global socio-economic practices, the interventions of government, the impact of cultural imperialism and, at the local level, through the actions of individuals and new constituencies that are emerging in response. This themed issue presents a range of essays that examine the relationship between sport and society through the conceptual lenses of community, mobility and identity.
Drawing upon insights from contemporary history and current political phenomena from leading academic specialists in the field, the issue addresses cross-cutting themes such as loyalty and allegiance, migration and integration, identity and collective memory, and the politics of resistance and change, which will be of interest to the political scientist, the contemporary historian and sport scholar alike.
This book was previously published as a special edition of the journal Sport in Society. Thus there has been a change in the nature of the politics of sport since the end of the Cold War; the subject must be rewritten to acknowledge a twenty-first century world in which international sporting organisations and transnational corporations have become far more important than states.
These issues range from the social, with divisions created along gender and class lines, to the use of sport to pursue diplomatic and statecraft goals. In addition, some sports are positioned and promoted as national events both in public opinion and in the media. Previously published as a special issue of Sport in Society, this book seeks to explore some aspects of the notion of power in sport in south Asia and among south Asians abroad.
The first two essays will deal with the internal societal dimensions of the politics of sport; the next three essays relate to the politics inside the sporting world in the subcontinent and its bridge with the broader arena of the society through the media, while the last five essays relate to the use of sports in statecraft, consensus building and international politics.

The papers are written by esteemed academics whose work is at the cutting-edge of this burgeoning area of study.

In order to respond to novel social, political, cultural and economic pressures, states are increasingly turning to sport as a foreign policy instrument; and they cannot ignore the corresponding influence that global sport has on their core interests. This special issue and edited book is devoted to exploring this relationship in detail. Although any examination of sport and foreign policy inevitably focuses on issues related to both politics and international relations the primary intention here is to consider the dimensions associated with foreign policy.
Instead, the late nineteenth century was a time of some experimentation and innovation largely unhindered by talk of cheating or health risks. By the interwar period, experiments had been modernised in the new laboratories of exercise physiologists. Still there was very little sense that this was contrary to the ethics or spirit of sport. Sports, drugs and science were closely linked for over half a century.
The Second World War provided the impetus for both increased use of drugs and the emergence of an anti-doping response. Alongside this emerged the science and procedural bureaucracy of testing. The years up to laid the foundations for four decades of anti-doping.
This book offers a detailed and critical understanding of who was involved, what they were trying to achieve, why they set about this task and the context in which they worked.

Fears of a Depleted Masculinity 8. Good Versus Evil? Drugs, Sport and the Cold War 9. A thorough, innovative yet entertaining and readable analysis of sport as an expression of the values and social relations of a nation. Covering the years between the two World Wars, the central place of sport in English life is brought into sharp focus, providing insight into issues of gender, class, religion and locality, ideas of morality, continuity and change, and what it meant to be English during this pivotal time.
This book gives a fascinating history of the English experience of sport, following its development through the centuries from its earliest beginnings in social play and pastimes, via its adoption as an alternative to the clock-watching routine of urban life, to its modern incarnation as a global business. Looking ahead to the future, the author asks whether our sports experience is turning full circle, and if in the twentyfirst century we are returning to a forgotten view of sport as a pastime and recreation.

Sport as an Industry This original and lucid study is ideal for students of sport and social history, and anyone with an interest in the social role of sport. Despite increasing opportunities in sport for British women during the late nineteenth century, virtually every segment of society opposed the idea of women playing football.
It covers their and tours through the eyes of the largely unsympathetic British press. It explains gender issues of the time, and the financial problems that doomed this experiment. These women endured public ridicule. Treasures lurk on every page to make it worth every penny. This book traces the story of the sport from the Northern Union of the s to the formation of the Super League in the s, through war, depression, boom and deindustrialisation, into a new economic and social age.

John Bale Roger Bannister was the first person to run the mile in under four minutes. Until now there has been little criticism and even less close historical study of Bannister and his achievement. This book does more than detail the history of a sporting giant.
Informed by contemporary sport science, the text also questions the significance of the four-minute mile. It considers cricket as a derivative sport, creatively and imaginatively adapted to suit modern Indian sociocultural needs, fulfil political imperatives and satisfy economic aspirations. It is concerned with the appropriation, assimilation and subversion of cricketing ideals in colonial and post-colonial India for nationalist ends.
In short, it is a story rooted in the contingencies of the colonial and postcolonial context of nineteenth- and twentieth-century India. This study describes how the genealogy of their intense engagement with cricket stretches back over a century. Providing fascinating insights into the history of track racing as well as athletic training methods and the beginnings of sport science, this is not just a testimonial to the legend of Roger Bannister, but instead is the first rigorous historical study of his sporting life and the man behind the legend.
It reveals him as an ambivalent athlete, highly achievementorientated and scientific, but also in love with the freedom of running sensuously in nature, in contrast to the constraints of modern sport. Cricket, Race and the World Cup Edited by Boria Majumdar, La Trobe University, Melbourne, Australia and Jon Gemmell Series: Sport in the Global Society This book explores whether commercialism is now the primary factor driving sport, it looks at the changes to cricket over the last 20 years, focusing on racial and ethnic tensions and their place in the new globalized, cricketing environment.

They also exported the game around the world, working as moral missionaries, passionate players and energetic entrepreneurs. The role of teachers in association football is a much neglected aspect of English cultural history. It is a story that deserves to be told because it allows a fundamental reappraisal of the status and position of these teachers in late nineteenth century and early twentieth century society. Drawing on primary sources, this book takes a thematic approach, looking at the changing nature of geopolitical structures, educational systems, religious institutions and the practice of warfare and medicine and goes on to trace the disappearance of ancient physical culture with its gymnasia, gladiators and chariot races, the invention of a new physical culture based on chivalry around AD, the transformation of that culture in the Renaissance, and its disappearance around under the influences of new science.
