Fathering through Sport and Leisure

Sport, Masculinities and the Body

Edited by Tess Kay, Loughborough University, UK

Ian Wellard

Fathering is a highly contested concept in popular, media, academic and policy discourses, yet in the areas of family studies and men’s studies, the leisure component of family life is under-played. This book provides a long overdue and thorough investigation of the relationship between fatherhood, sport, and leisure.

Series: Routledge Research in Sport, Culture and Society

Fathering through Sport and Leisure investigates what fathers actually do in the time they spend with their children. Leading researchers from the fields of sport, leisure and family studies examine the tensions men encounter as they endeavour to meet the new expectations of fatherhood, and the central role that sport and leisure play in overcoming this. Analysed in relation to social trends and current policy debates, this unique collection examines fathering in a wide range of contexts including: • parental expectation and youth sports • fathers and daughters • leisure time and couple time in dual earner families • divorce, fatherhood and leisure • the child’s perspective on fathering, sport and leisure. The book shows how contemporary fathers use sport and leisure to engage with their sons and daughters, achieve emotional closeness and fulfil their own expectations of what it means to be a ‘good father’. Drawing on research carried out in the UK, Australia, Canada and the United States, this is a crucial text for anybody with an interest in leisure studies, family studies or fatherhood.

This groundbreaking work explores masculinity and the body within sports. Sports continue to retain expectations for presentations of specific forms of masculinity. The body is central to these presentations. These everyday bodily performances are rehearsed and performed either successfully or unsuccessfully – and the consequences of these actions play a significant part in the ability of the individual to continue to take part. Through participant observations, sporting life-history interviews (with over forty men) and research with children, this book examines the ways in which ‘appropriate’ sporting masculinities are learned and enacted to varying degrees of success. Wellard highlights the social processes which impact upon individual constructions and formulations of masculine identity and review these in relation to broader debates on gender, embodiment and sporting participation. This book contributes not only to the academic fields of sport and gender, but also to the efforts to confront continued forms of ‘accepted’ gender discrimination.

The Nature of Performance

Selected Writings of Roberta J. Park

Tara Magdalinski, University College Dublin, Ireland

Edited by J.A. Mangan, Formerly at the University of Strathclyde, UK and Patricia Vertinsky, University of British Columbia, Canada

What is the nature of athletic performance? This book offers an answer to this fascinating question by considering the relationship between sport, technology and the body. Specifically, it examines cultural resistance to the enhancement of athletes and explores the ways in which performance technologies complicate and confound our conception of the sporting body. The book addresses concerns about the technological ’invasion’ of the ’natural’ body to investigate expectations that athletic performances reflect nothing more than the actual capacity of the untainted athlete. By examining a series of case studies, including Paralympic sprinter Oscar Pistorius, Fastskin swimsuits, hypoxic chambers and an array of illicit substances and methods, the book distinguishes between internal and external technologies to highlight the ways that performance enhancement, and public reaction to it, can be read. Sport, Technology and the Body offers a powerful challenge to conventional views of athletic performance that stand authenticity against artifice, integrity against corruption, and athletic purity against technological intrusion. It is essential reading for all serious students of the sociology, culture or ethics of sport.

Fit for Consumption

Matters of Sport

Sociology and the Business of Fitness

Essays in Honour of Eric Dunning

Jennifer Smith Maguire, Leicester University, UK

Edited by Dominic Malcolm, Loughborough University, UK and Ivan Waddington, University of Chester, UK

This is the first text to offer a comprehensive socio-cultural and historical analysis of the current fitness culture. Fitness today is not simply about health clubs and exercise classes, or measures of body mass index and cardiovascular endurance. Fit for Consumption conceptualizes fitness as a field within which individuals and institutions may negotiate - if not altogether reconcile - the competing and often conflicting social demands made on the individual body that characterize our current era. Intended for researchers and senior undergraduate and postgraduate students of sport, leisure, cultural studies and the body, this book utilizes the US fitness field as a case study through which to explore the place of the body in contemporary consumer culture. Combining observations in health clubs, interviews with fitness producers and consumers, and a discourse analysis of a wide variety of fitness texts, this book provides an empirically grounded examination of one of the pressing theoretical questions of our time: how individuals learn to fit into consumer culture and the service economy and how our bodies and selves become ‘fit for consumption.’ Selected Contents: 1. Making Sense of Fitness 2. The Roots of Fitness: Physical Culture and Physical Capital 3. Health Clubs: The Stratification of Fitness Sites 4. Fitness Media: An Education in the Fitness Lifestyle 5.

Michel Foucault’s work profoundly influences the way we think about society, in particular how we understand social power, the self, and the body. This book gives an innovative and entirely new analysis of his later works making it a one-stop guide for students, exploring how Foucauldian theory can inform our understanding of the body, domination, identity and freedom as experienced through sport and exercise.

Divided into three themed parts, this book considers: • Foucault’s ideas and key debates • Foucault’s theories to explore power relations, the body, identity and the construction of social practices in sport and exercise • how individuals make sense of the social forces surrounding them, considering physical activity, fitness and sport practices as expressions of freedom and sites for social change. Accessible and clear, including useful case studies helping to bring the theory to real-life, Foucault, Sport and Exercise considers cultures and experiences in sports, exercise and fitness, coaching and health promotion. In addition to presenting established Foucauldian perspectives and debates, this text also provides innovative discussion of how Foucault’s later work can inform the study and understanding of sport and the physically active body. 2006: 234 x 156: 264pp Hb: 978-0-415-35862-0: £85.00 US $170.00 Pb: 978-0-415-35863-7: £24.99 US $49.95 eBook: 978-0-203-00650-4

The Gay Games

Global and Local Football Politics and Europeanization on the fringes of the EU Gary Armstrong, Brunel University, UK and Jon P. Mitchell, University of Sussex, UK What can the history of a nation’s football reveal about that nation’s wider political and socio-cultural identity? 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. This book examines Maltese football in the context of the island’s unique politics, culture and national identity, shedding light upon both Maltese society and on broader processes, both local and global, within the international game. The book explores a range of key issues in contemporary football, such as: • the dynamics of international player migration

A History Caroline Symons, Victoria University, Australia The Gay Games is an important piece of new social history, examining one of the largest sporting, cultural and human rights events in the world. Since their inception in 1980, the Gay Games have developed into a multi-million dollar megaevent, engaging people from all continents, while the international Gay Games movement has become one of the largest and most significant international institutions for gay and lesbian people. Drawing on detailed archival research, oral history and participant observation techniques, and informed by critical feminist theory and queer theory, this book offers the first comprehensive history of the Gay Games from 1980 through to the Chicago games of 2006. It explores the significance of the Games in the context of broader currents of gay and lesbian history, and addresses a wide range of key contemporary themes within sports studies, including the cultural politics of sport, the politics of difference and identity, and the rise of sporting mega-events. This book is important reading for any serious student of international sport or gender and sexuality studies.

Marxism, Cultural Studies and Sport

Inside the Biggest Show on Television

Edited by Ben Carrington, The University of Texas at Austin, USA and Ian McDonald, University of Brighton, UK

Andrew C. Billings, Clemson University, USA

Marxism, Cultural Studies and Sport brings together leading experts on sport to address these issues and to reflect on the continued appeal of sport to people across the globe, as well as on the forms of inequality that sport both produces and highlights. Including a Foreword by Harry Cleaver and Afterword by Michael Bérubé, this book assesses the impact of this work on the fields of ‘mainstream’ Marxism and cultural studies. Marxism, Cultural Studies and Sport is centred on three vital questions: • is Marxism still relevant for understanding sport in the twenty-first century? • has Marxism been preserved or transcended by cultural studies? • what is the relationship between theory and intervention in the politics of sport? The result is a unique and diverse examination of modern sports culture. The first book published on the relationship between sport and Marxism for over twenty years, Marxism, Cultural Studies and Sport is an invaluable resource for students of sport sociology, Marxism, and cultural studies at all levels. Selected Contents: 1. Introduction: Marxism, Cultural Studies and Sport 2. One-Dimensional Sport: Rethinking Marxist Theories of Sport 3. Foucault, Marxism and Sport 4.

Located in the United States, NBC (National Broadcasting Company) is the biggest and most powerful Olympic network in the world, having won the rights to televise both the Summer and the Winter Olympic Games. By way of attracting more viewers of both sexes and all ages and ethnicities than any other sporting event, and through the production of breathtaking spectacles and absorbing stories, NBC’s Olympic telecasts have huge power and potential to shape viewer perceptions. Billings’s unique text examines the production, content, and potential effects of NBC’s Olympic telecasts. Interviews with key NBC Olympic producers and sportscasters (including NBC Universal Sports and Olympics President Dick Ebersol and primetime anchor Bob Costas) outline the inner workings of the NBC Olympic machine; content analyses from ten years of Olympic telecasts (1996-2006) examining the portrayal of nationality, gender, and ethnicity within NBC’s telecast; and survey analyses interrogate the extent to which NBC’s storytelling process affects viewer beliefs about identity issues. This mixed-method approach offers valuable insights into what Billings portrays as ’the biggest show on television’. Selected Contents: 1. Investigating the Biggest Show on Television 2.

’Whannel is a foundational figure in the study of sports and the media. For twenty years his writing has set a high standard and it remains an inspiration to many’ – Toby Miller, Professor of Cultural Studies, New York University, USA Garry Whannel’s text Blowing the Whistle: The Politics of Sport broke new ground when it was first published in 1983. Its polemical discussion brought sports as cultural politics into the academic arena and set the agenda for a new wave of researchers. Since the 1980s 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 1980s context from our new millennium perspective, and exploring their continued relevance for contemporary sports academics.

P. David Howe, Loughborough University, UK Do the Paralympic Games empower the disability sport community? 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. Selected Contents: 1.

Why Sports Morally Matter

Edited by Jennifer Hargreaves, University of Brighton, UK and Patricia Vertinsky, University of British Columbia, Canada

William J. Morgan

During the past decade, there has been an outpouring of books on ’the body’ in society, but none has focused as specifically on physical culture - that is, cultural practices such as sport and dance within which the moving physical body is central. Questions are raised about the character of the body, specifically the relation between the ‘natural’ body, the ‘constructed’ body and the ‘alien’ or ‘virtual’ body throughout the book. The themes of the book are wide in scope, including: • physical culture and the fascist body • sport and the racialised body • sport medicine, health and the culture of risk • the female Muslim sporting body, power, and politics • experiencing the disabled sporting body • embodied exhibitions of striptease and sport • the social logic of sparring • sport, girls and the neoliberal body. Physical Culture, Power, and the Body aims to break down disciplinary boundaries in its theoretical approaches and its readership. The author’s multi-disciplinary backgrounds, demonstrate the widespread topicality of physical culture and the body. 2006: 234 x 156: 280pp Hb: 978-0-415-36351-8: £85.00 Pb: 978-0-415-36352-5: £27.50 eBook: 978-0-203-01465-3

When we accept that advertisers and sponsors dictate athletic schedules, that success in sport is measured by revenue, that athletes’ loyalties lie with their commercial agents instead of teams and that game rules exist to be tested and broken in the pursuit of a win, what does our regard for sport say about the moral and political well-being of our society? Why Sports Morally Matter is a deeply critical examination of pressing ethical issues in sports – and in society as a whole. Exploring the broad historical context of modern America, William J. Morgan argues that the current state of sports is a powerful indictment of our wealth-driven society and hyperindividualistic way of life. Taking on critics from all sides of the political debate, Morgan makes the case that, despite the negating effect of free market values, sport still possesses important features that encourage social, moral and political values crucial to the flourishing of a democratic polity. It is this potential to transform society and the individual that makes sport a key battleground in the struggle for the moral soul of twentyfirst century America. 2006: 234 x 156: 272pp Hb: 978-0-415-35773-9: £80.00 Pb: 978-0-415-35774-6: £24.99

Sporting Sounds Relationships Between Sport and Music Edited by Anthony Bateman, De Montfort University, UK and John Bale, Aarhuus University, Denmark Music and sport are both highly significant cultural forms, yet the substantial and longstanding connections between the two have largely been overlooked.

With contributions from leading international psychologists, sociologists, historians, musicologists and specialists in sports and cultural studies, the book illuminates our understanding of the vital part music has played in the performance, reception and commodification of sport. It explores a fascinating range of topics and case studies, including: • the use of music to enhance sporting performance • professional applications of music in sport • sporting anthems as historical commemorations • music at the Olympics • supporter rock music in Swedish sport • caribbean cricket and calypso music.

John Bale, Keele University, UK and Aarhuus University, Denmark This book draws on literature, specifically on the writings of selected novelists and poets to widen an existing anti-sport discourse to include hitherto excluded voices from the world of literature. The book commences with a review of exiting pro- and antisport discourses and then proceeds to examine, in turn, the written works of five eminent authors, excavating from their writings their anti-sports rhetorics. These writers are Lewis Carroll (Charles Dodgson), Charles Hamilton Sorley, Jerome K. Jerome, John Betjeman and Alan Sillitoe. In its conclusion, the book draws together the broad themes discussed in the preceding chapters. Innovative in its approach to sport and literature and remarkable for its not having been previously explored in any depth, this book will be of interest to readers from both social sciences and humanities backgrounds. 2007: 234 x 156: 224pp Hb: 978-0-415-42265-9: £75.00 US $150.00 eBook: 978-0-203-93582-8

Sport offers everything a good story should have: heroes and villains, triumph and disaster, achievement and despair, tension and drama. Consequently, sport makes for a compelling film narrative and films, in turn, are a vivid medium for sport.

Boxing, Masculinity and Identity

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.

The ’I’ of the Tiger Kath Woodward, The Open University, UK Drawing on ethnographic research as well as popular representations of boxing in the media, this book considers the relationships between the portrayal of the sport and its practice, alongside complex sociological constructs of identity and gender.

This is a timely collection that draws together a diverse range of accessible, insightful and ground-breaking new essays. This book was published as a special issue of Sport in Society. July 2008: 246 x 174: 288pp Hb: 978-0-415-44750-8: £75.00 US $140.00

Native Americans and Sport in North America Other People’s Games

Series: Sport in the Global Society

Edited by C. King, Washington State University, USA

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. The first part of the book explores the diffusion of Gaelic games to a number of centres of Irish immigration and examines the social, economic, political and psychological impact that these games had in helping the Diaspora adjust to life in what were often inhospitable environs. The second part of the book extends the analysis by examining the contribution of Irish sports men and women to the sports culture that they encountered in their new homes and assessing the ways in which their involvement in these sports allowed them to come to terms with and make their way in their new locales.

Series: Sport in the Global Society This text offers compassionate and critical accounts of the Native American sporting experience. It challenges popular images of indigenous athletes and athletics; it explores Native American participation in Euro American sports; it unpacks social categories, particularly gender, race and heritage and their implications for understanding Native Americans and sport in North America.

Sport and Foreign Policy in a Globalizing World

Chris Gratton, Sheffield Hallam University, UK and Harry Arne Solberg, Sør-Trøndelag University College, Norway

Edited by Steven J. Jackson and Steven Haigh, both at University of Otago, New Zealand

A long-term study providing rare insights into the precarious career and ordinary working culture of professional footballers. Away from the celebrity-obsessed media gaze, the work of a professional footballer is rarely glamorous and for most players a career in football is insecure and short-lived. A former professional, Martin Roderick’s familiarity with the world of football is the foundation for this privileged research into a world that is typically closed to the public gaze and ignored by media reportage and academic research which prefers to focus on a small, unrepresentative group of elite players. Key themes explored within the text include: • the culture of work in professional football • the changing identity, orientation and expectations of players during their careers • the fragile and uncertain nature of professional sport careers • the performance and dramatic aspects of a career under public scrutiny • the role of relationships with managers, owners, support staff and partners

A Social History of English Rugby Union

A History of Drug Use in Sport: 1876–1976

Tony Collins, Leeds Metropolitan University, UK

Beyond Good and Evil

From the myth of William Webb Ellis to the glory of the 2003 World Cup win, this book explores the social history of rugby union in England. Ever since Tom Brown’s Schooldays the sport has seen itself as the guardian of traditional English middle-class values. In this fascinating new history, leading rugby historian Tony Collins demonstrates how these values have shaped the English game, from the public schools to mass spectator sport, from strict amateurism to global professionalism. Based on unprecedented access to the official archives of the Rugby Football Union, and drawing on an impressive array of sources from club minutes to personal memoirs and contemporary literature, the book explores in vivid detail the key events, personalities and players that have made English rugby. From an era of rapid growth at the end of the nineteenth century, through the terrible losses suffered during the First World War and the subsequent ‘rush to rugby’ in the public and grammar schools, and into the periods of disorientation and commercialisation in the 1960s through to the present day, the story of English rugby union is also the story of the making of modern England. Like all the very best writers on sport, Tony Collins uses sport as a prism through which to better understand both culture and society. A ground-breaking work of both social history and sport history, A Social History of English Rugby Union tells a fascinating story of sporting endeavour, masculine identity, imperial ideology, social consciousness and the nature of Englishness.

Media and the Creation of Babe Ruth Patrick Adam Trimble, Penn State University, USA Series: Studies in American Popular History and Culture Babe Ruth is among the most lasting of American icons. A baseball player who emerged from the sports pages of the Jazz Age, he has become one of the dominant symbols of traditional cultural values, nationalism, and masculine identity. His is a media persona that has changed drastically over the years and is one that allows each new generation of people discovering him to take what they need from the stories of the Babe and reinvent them for their own uses. Trimble carefully unpacks Ruth’s legacy, examining how mass communications, with the assistance of the political and economic systems that rely on that media, help to shape the evolution of Babe Ruth from his creation as a media icon in the 1920s to his continuing presence in the new millennium.

Region, Nation and Globe

James Lee, Bucknell University, USA

Brian Stoddart, La Trobe University, Australia

Series: Sport in the Global Society

Series: Sport in the Global Society

This book tells the story of “the Lady Footballers”. It covers their 1895 and 1896 tours through the eyes of the largely unsympathetic British press and explains gender issues of the time, and the financial problems that doomed this experiment.

In addition to being an internationally recognised pioneer of sports history, Brian Stoddart has also been a leading thinker and influence in the field. That influence has crossed several areas of history, sociology, business, politics and media aspects of sports studies, and has drawn deeply upon his own training in Asian studies. His work has been characterised by cross-disciplinary work from the outset, and has encompassed some very different geographical areas as well as crossing from academic outlets to media commentary. As a result, his influential work has appeared in many different locations, and it has been difficult for a wide variety of readers to access it fully and easily. This volume draws together, in the one place for the first time, some of his most important academic and journalistic work. Importantly, the pieces are drawn together by an intellectual/autobiographical commentary that locates each piece in a wider social and cultural framework.

This book examines the press coverage of the time, which helped to elevate Owens to such status. Laucella utilizes examples not just from the mainstream press, but also from the black and Communist press, and reveals critical differences in the tone, emphasis, and type of coverage. She offers exceptional insight into the potency of language and discourse in influencing readers’ perceptions of events and individuals and demonstrates how the press coverage of the 1930s continues to shape our understandings of Owens’ legacy.

HISTORY OF SPORT

Cricket in Colonial India 1780-1947 Boria Majumdar, La Trobe University, Melbourne, Australia Series: Sport in the Global Society Boria Majumdar reveals the appropriation, assimilation and subversion of cricketing ideals in colonial and post-colonial India for nationalist ends. He exposes a sport rooted in the contingencies of the colonial and post-colonial context of nineteenth and twentieth century India. Cricket, to put it simply, is much more than a ‘game’ for Indians. This study describes how the genealogy of their intense engagement with cricket stretches back over a century. It is concerned not only with the game but also with the end of cricket as a mere sport, with Indian cricket’s commercial revolution in the 1930s, with ideals and idealism and their relative unimportance, with the decline of morality for reasons of realpolitik, and with the denunciation, once and for all, of the view that sport and politics do not mix.

It Matters Not Who Won or Lost?

TEXTBOOK

Edited by Dilwyn Porter, De Montfort University, Leicester, UK and Stephen Wagg, Leeds Metropolitan University, UK

The Story of Sport in England

The ideal of the amateur competitor, playing the game for love and, unlike the professional, totally untainted by commerce, has become embedded in many accounts of the development of modern sport. It has proved influential not least because it has underpinned a pervasive impression of professionalism - and all that came with it - as a betrayal of innocence, a fall from sporting grace. In the essays collected here, amateurism, both as ideology and practice, is subject to critical and unsentimental scrutiny, effectively challenging the dominant narrative of more conventional histories of British sport. Most modern sports, even those where professionalism developed rapidly, originated in an era when the gentlemanly amateur predominated, both in politics and society, as well as in the realm of sport. Enforcement of rules and conventions that embodied the amateur-elite ethos effectively limited opportunities for working-class competitors to ‘turn the world upside down’.

Neil Wigglesworth, Lancaster University, UK Series: Student Sport Studies 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. Key themes and issues in the evolution of sport are examined, including: • social structures, such as the division between amateurs and professionals • the growth of the popular press and the influence of television • the post-war emergence of sports ‘welfarism’ and ‘sport for all’ • globalization and commercialization. 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.

Body and Mind Sport in Europe from the Roman Empire to the Renaissance John McClelland, University of Toronto, Canada Series: Sport in the Global Society This is the first book to address the gap in the literature linking the physical culture of the ancient world with the beginnings of modern sport, this original book traces the history of the evolution of a variety of sport, games and physical education from 450-1650AD across Western Europe. 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 1000AD, the transformation of that culture in the Renaissance, and its disappearance around 1650 under the influences of new science.

Rugby League in Twentieth Century Britain A Social and Cultural History Tony Collins, Leeds Metropolitan University, UK ’It is only a slight exaggeration to say that this is the book rugby league has needed for the past 111 years.’ - The Independent, September 2006 Described as ‘the greatest game of all’ by its supporters but often overlooked by the cultural mainstream, no sport is more identified with England’s northern working class than rugby league. This book traces the story of the sport from the Northern Union of the 1900s to the formation of the Super League in the 1990s, through war, depression, boom and deindustrialisation, into a new economic and social age. Using a range of previously unexplored archival sources, this extremely readable and deeply researched book considers the impact of two world wars, the significance of the game’s expansion to Australasia and the momentous decision to take rugby league to Wembley. It investigates the history of rugby union’s long-running war against league, and the sport’s troubled relationship with the national media. Most importantly, this book sheds new light on issues of social class and working-class masculinity, regional identity and the profound impact of the decline of Britain’s traditional industries. For all those interested in the history of sport and working-class culture, this is essential reading. 2006: 234 x 156: 272pp Hb: 978-0-415-39614-1: £85.00 US $170.00 Pb: 978-0-415-39615-8: £27.50 US $52.95 eBook: 978-0-203-08835-7

Sport and the Cold War

Rugby’s Great Split

Edited by Stephen Wagg, Leeds Metropolitan University, UK and David Andrews, University of Maryland, USA

Class, Culture and the Origins of Rugby League Football

The Cold War spanned some five decades from the devastation that remained after the Second World War until the fall of the Berlin wall, and for much of that time the perception was that only on the Eastern side were politics and sport inextricably linked. However, this assumption underestimates the extent to which sport was an important symbol for both power blocs in their ongoing ideological struggle.

Tony Collins, Leeds Metropolitan University, UK Series: Sport in the Global Society Since it’s first publication, Rugby’s Great Split has established itself as a classic in the field of sport history. Drawing on an unprecedented range of sources, this deeply researched and highly readable book traces the social, cultural and economic divisions that led, in 1895, to schism in the game of rugby and the creation of rugby league, the sport of England’s northern working class. Tony Collins’ analysis challenges many of the conventional assumptions about this key event in rugby history – about class conflict, amateurism in sport, the North-South divide, violence on the pitch, the development of mass spectator sport and the rise of football. This new edition is expanded to cover parallel events in Australia and New Zealand, and to address the key question of rugby league’s failure to establish itself in Wales. Rugby’s Great Split is a benchmark text in the history of rugby, and an absorbing case study of wider issues – issues of class, gender, regional and national identity, and the impact of the commercialization and recent professionalization of rugby league. This insightful text is for anyone interested in Britain’s social history or in the emergence of modern sport, it is vital reading. 2006: 234 x 156: 288pp Hb: 978-0-415-39616-5: £90.00 US $180.00 Pb: 978-0-415-39617-2: £27.50 US $52.95

Sport Histories Figurational Studies in the Development of Modern Sports Edited by Eric Dunning, Dominic Malcolm and Ivan Waddington Sports Histories draws on figurational sociology to provide a fresh approach to analysing the development of modern sport. The book brings together ten case studies from a wide range of sports, including mainstream sports such as soccer, rugby, baseball, boxing and cricket, to other sports that until now have been largely neglected by sports historians, such as shooting, motor racing, tennis, gymnastics and martial arts. This groundbreaking work highlights key debates in the analysis of modern sport, such as: • the relative influence of intra-national class conflict and international conflict • the relative prominence of commercially led processes in different contexts • the centrality of concerns over violence • differences between elite and mass-led sports developments. Above all, Sport Histories proves the distinctiveness of the figurational sociological approach and its usefulness in the study of the development of modern sport. 2004: 234 x 156: 224pp Hb: 978-0-415-28665-7: £90.00 US $180.00 Pb: 978-0-415-39794-0: £24.99 US $47.95 eBook: 978-0-203-49743-2

Beijing 2008: Preparing for Glory

Beatriz Garcia, University of Liverpool, UK

Edited by J.A. Mangan, Formerly at the University of Strathclyde, UK and Dong Jinxia, Beijing University, China

Series: Routledge Research in Sport, Culture and Society This book explores how cultural policies are reflected in the design, management and promotion of the Olympic Games. Garcia examines the concept and evolution of cultural policies throughout the recent history of the Olympic Games and then specifically evaluates the cultural program of the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. Garcia argues that the cultural relevance of a major event is highly dependant on the consistency of the policy choices informing its cultural dimensions. She demonstrates how major events, such as the Olympic Games, frequently fail to leave long-term cultural legacies and are often unable to provide an experience that fully engages and represents the host community, due to their over-emphasis on an economic rather than a social and cultural agenda.

Chinese Challenge in the ’Chinese Century’

Series: Sport in the Global Society Beijing 2008: Preparing for Glory - Chinese Challenge in the ‘Chinese Century’ brings together international scholars with an interest in sport and politics and sinologists with an interest in China - past, present and future - to explore global reaction to the Beijing Olympics - China’s anticipated moment of glory on the world stage. The Beijing Olympics is, first and foremost, a political act and assertion. It is also a statement of national intent, the culmination of ideological effort going back to 1949 and the outcome of political, social, cultural and economic change. From the moment of the birth of the ‘New China’ sport has been viewed as a means of internal and external projection illustrating the capacity of the system and people to more than hold their own with those of other nations. In short, sport has been the chosen ‘stage’ on which the Chinese perform in pursuit of world recognition, respect and esteem. This assertion is not hard to understand. China’s ‘century of humiliation’ at the hands of first the West and then Japan remains a traumatic experience. Beijing 2008 is to assist the restoration of China’s national self-esteem. He Zhenliang, Chairman of the IOC Commission for the Culture of Olympic Education, has remarked pointedly that the most significant outcome of the Beijing Games will be the elevation of the self-confidence and sense of pride of the Chinese people. Beijing 2008 will be an act of political self-renewal on the world stage. This Collection demonstrates that sport is inseparable from politics.

OLYMPICS AND PARALYMPICS NEW FOR 2009

India and the Olympics Boria Majumdar and Nalin Mehta, both at La Trobe University, Melbourne, Australia In most accounts of Olympic history across the world, India’s Olympic journey is a mere footnote. This book is a corrective. Drawing on newly available and hitherto unused archival sources, it demonstrates that India was an important strategic outpost in the Olympic movement that started as a global phenomenon at the turn of the twentieth century. Among the questions the authors answer are: When and how did the Olympic ideology take root in India? Who were the early players and why did they appropriate Olympic sport to further their political ambitions? What explains India’s eight consecutive gold medals in Olympic men’s hockey between 1928 and 1956 and what altered the situation drastically, so much so that the team failed to qualify for the 2008 Beijing Games? India and the Olympics also explores why the Indian elite became obsessed with the Olympic ideal at the turn of the twentieth century and how this obsession relates to India’s quest for a national and international identity. It conclusively validates the contention that the essence of Olympism does not reside in medals won, records broken or television rights sold as ends in themselves. Particularly for India, the Olympic movement, including the relevant records and statistics, is important because it provides a unique prism to understand the complex evolution of modern Indian society.

The 1940 Tokyo Games: The Missing Olympics Japan, the Asian Olympics and the Olympic Movement Sandra Collins, San Francisco State University, USA Series: Sport in the Global Society By representing their experience of modernity as different from the West in their respective Olympic Games, Asian nations reveal much about the ambitions and anxieties of being an Asian host in the continuing western Olympic hegemony. This original work explores the encounter between ‘the East and the West’ by analyzing the deliberate self-presentational cultural diplomacy historically required of Asian Olympic hosts. Exploring the relationship between Modern Asia and the Olympic Games, it focuses on the forgotten history of the 1940 Tokyo Olympics to reveal the complex and fascinating encounter between Japan and the world in the 1930s. The book is the first full account of this encounter and draws substantially on Japanese sources hitherto unknown in the English-speaking world. It argues that this encounter sets the scene and the tone for later Asian involvement in the Olympic Movement. This work fills a gap in the literature, and provides an original addition to the history of Japanese culture, Asian cultures and the Olympic Movement.

America at the Olympics

City Agendas, Planning, and the World’s Games, 1896 to 2016

Mark Dyreson, Pennsylvania State University, USA Series: Sport in the Global Society For more than a century the USA has used the Olympic Games to construct national identity, create communal memory, and craft patriotic mythology. From opening parades where the American team refuses to dip its flag in order to signal American exceptionalism to the closing ceremonies where the U.S. media trumpet that their team owes its medals not to superior athleticism but to the nation’s peerless social and political systems, Olympic Games have served as sites to bolster American nationalism. More than any other nation, the United States has politicized its Olympic participation. In the process a host of myths about American superiority in global encounters has emerged through the Olympics. In memorializing and mythologizing their Olympic teams Americans have revealed the contours of the racial, gender, and class dynamics that animate their peculiar nationhood. These essays explore the history of expressions of American national identity in Olympic arenas. This book was published as a special issue of the International Journal of the History of Sport.

With eighteen specially commissioned and original essays written by a team of distinguished authors from the UK and overseas, it explores the historical experience of staging the Olympics from the point of view of the host city. A thought-provoking analysis of the relationship between Olympic festivals and urban spectacle it: • provides overviews of the urban impact of the four component Olympic festivals – the Summer Games, Winter Games, Cultural Olympiads and the Paralympics • comprises systematic surveys of four key aspects of activity involved in staging the Olympics – finance, place promotion, managing spectacle and urban regeneration • consists of nine chronologically arranged portraits of host cities, from 1936 to 2012, with particular emphasis on the first four Summer Olympic games of the twenty-first century. As controversy over the growing size and expense of the Olympics continues unabated, this book’s incisive and timely assessment of the Games’ development and the complex agendas that host cities attach to the event will be essential reading not only for urban and sports historians, urban geographers, planners and all concerned with understanding the relationship between cities and culture, but for anyone with an interest in the staging of mega-events. 2007: 246 x 174: 368pp Hb: 978-0-415-37406-4: £75.00 US $150.00 Pb: 978-0-415-37407-1: £25.99 US $45.95 eBook: 978-0-203-09887-5

Examining Sports Development

Sport, Policy and Development

Edited by Mike F. Collins, University of Gloucestershire, UK

An Introduction Daniel Bloyce and Andrew Smith, both at University of Chester, UK As the role of sport in society becomes better understood, the need to have effective sports development programmes has emerged as a central concern for government and local authority administration. Pro-social sports development policies are now devised and implemented all over the world. Sport, Policy and Development introduces the key themes in sport and social policy and provides students with a base for understanding the process of social policy creation more generally. Adopting a distinctive critical sociological perspective, the book offers a comprehensive analysis of the ways in which sports policies are thought to influence society, including close discussion of:

Sports development takes place in continually evolving and expanding territory. If new policies are to be implemented effectively, it is vital to understand how development policy translates into the real world. Until now no single text has examined how sports development policies are implemented and experienced “at the coal face” of community and performance sport. As well as critical analysis of models and concepts in sports development, Examining Sports Development presents original case studies from practising sports development professionals working in a variety of areas, including: • national and regional policy • school sport • talent identification and development • sports club development

• the social policy process

• coach development

• sport and health promotion

• sport and social inclusion

• ‘sport for all’ and social inclusion

• sports and crime prevention

• youth sport, PE and school sport

• sports and health promotion.

• elite sport development.

Sports development is evolving as a profession, especially in matters of education and training. This book encourages critical reflection, pointing the way to accountable policymaking and a long-term future for sports development professionals. It is essential reading for all students and practitioners working in sports development.

Accessible and engaging, and including examples of policy and practice from the UK, the US and around the world, this textbook is a clear and concise introduction to sports policy and development for students, practitioners and policymakers alike.

Transnational and Comparative Research in Sport

Sport and Crime Reduction

Globalisation, Governance and Sport Policy

Geoff Nichols, Sheffield University, UK

Edited by Ian Henry, Loughborough University, UK

The use of sports-based activity programmes as a means of tackling crime has been explored in a number of countries worldwide, particularly in relation to the prevention of reoffending in the ten to eighteen age bracket. However, until now there has been no definitive and rigorous analysis of the rationale behind these programmes, and evidence of their successes and failures has been piecemeal, uncritical and without standardization. This book addresses this gap in the literature, bringing together empirical research from programmes in the UK, US and Australia with an explanation and evaluation of the results of these initiatives. Subjects covered include:

The wider adoption of a post-modern understanding of truth and knowledge, an acceptance of the prevalence of Orientalism inherent in much Western research, and the diminished significance of the ‘local’ within the rhetoric of globalization have all combined to constrain comparative and transnational research under the weight of theoretical and methodological concerns. Transnational and Comparative Research in Sport addresses these difficulties in the context of sport studies, with the aim of developing typology which can be adopted to help reestablish meaningful transnational and comparative research. The book covers theoretical and substantive contexts and introduces a four-fold typology of approaches to comparative research, each supported by case studies and full discussion. 2007: 234 x 156: 256pp Hb: 978-0-415-40112-8: £75.00 US $150.00 eBook: 978-0-203-94473-8

A Wider Social Role for Sport

2ND EDITION

Who’s Keeping the Score?

Sports Development

Fred Coalter, Stirling University, UK

Policy, Process and Practice

Sport is perceived to have the potential to alleviate a variety of social problems and generally to ‘improve’ both individuals and the communities in which they live. Sport is promoted as a relatively cost effective antidote to a range of social problems – often those stemming from social exclusion including poor health, high crime levels, drug abuse and persistent youth offending, educational underachievement, lack of social cohesion and community identity and economic decline. To this end, there is increasing governmental interest in what has become known as ‘sport for good’.

Edited by Kevin Hylton and Peter Bramham, both at Leeds Metropolitan University, UK

A Wider Social Role for Sport presents the political and historical context for this increased government interest in sport’s potential contribution to a range of social problems. The book explores the particular social problems that governments seek to address through sport, and examines the nature and extent of the evidence for sport’s positive role.

’This second edition brings us right up to date at a time when any discussions defining and redefining what sports development actually is are more relevant than ever.’ - Val Stevenson, Education and Training Manager, Institute for Sports Parks and Leisure (ISPAL)

It illustrates that, in an era of evidence-based policy-making, the cumulative evidence base for many of these claims is relatively weak, in part because such research is faced with substantial methodological problems in isolating the precise contribution of sport in many contexts. Drawing on worldwide research, A Wider Social Role for Sport explores the current state of knowledge and understanding of the presumed impacts of sport and suggests that we need to adopt a different approach to research and evaluation if sports researchers are to develop their understanding and make a substantial contribution to sports policy.. 2007: 234 x 156: 216pp Hb: 978-0-415-36349-5: £75.00 US $150.00 Pb: 978-0-415-36350-1: £24.99 US $49.95 eBook: 978-0-203-01461-5

’This book represents a watershed in the history of the sector and provides an important single point of reference for the subject.’ - Derrick Anderson, CBE, Chief Executive, Lambeth Council, UK ’A rich and varied contribution to the proliferation of courses and to the professional wishing to engage in a critical examination of its policy, process and practice.’ - Journal of Sport, Education and Society

Sports Development is an important emerging field of academic study with a distinctive contribution to make to wider social, cultural, economic and educational policies and practices. Sports Development: Policy, Process and Practice offers a detailed, authoritative and dependable guide to all aspects of the subject. Now in its second edition, this popular course text examines the roles of those working in and around sports development and explores how professionals can devise better and more effective ways of promoting interest, participation or performance in sport. The book has been fully updated to include coverage of contemporary debates about mass participation, community sports development, social inclusion, coaching and talent development, PE and school sport, working and volunteering in sports development, elite performance and the Olympic Games, research and policy evaluation.

Physical Activity and Health explains clearly, systematically and in detail the relationships between physical activity, health and disease, and examines the benefits of exercise in the prevention and treatment of a wide range of important conditions. Now in a fully updated and revised edition, and still the most complete and engaging textbook on this important subject, Physical Activity and Health offers a balanced examination of the very latest evidence linking levels of physical activity with disease and mortality. It offers a wideranging assessment of the importance of inactivity as a factor in major diseases and health conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, cancer and osteoporosis. The book is designed to help the reader evaluate the quality and significance of the scientific evidence, and includes an invaluable discussion of common study designs and the inherent difficulties of measuring physical activity. It also explores the full range of contemporary themes in the study of exercise and health, such as the hazards of exercise; exercise and the elderly; children’s health and exercise, and physical activity and public health policy, and a critical appraisal of current recommendations for physical activity. Containing useful features throughout, such as chapter summaries, study tasks, guides to supplementary reading and definitions of key terms, and richly illustrated with supporting tables, figures and plates, Physical Activity and Health is an essential course text. Now supported by a companion website featuring self-test questions, Powerpoint slides for lecturers, additional learning activites and web links, this book is vital reading for degree-level students of sport and exercise science, public health, physical therapy, medicine and nursing.

SPORT, EXERCISE AND HEALTH Education, Disordered Eating and Obesity Discourse

Men and the War on Obesity

Fat Fabrications

Lee F. Monaghan, University of Limerick, Ireland

John Evans and Emma Rich, both at Loughborough University, UK, Brian Davies, Cardiff University, UK and Rachel Allwood, Loughborough University, UK Eating less, exercising more and losing weight seem the obvious solution for the oncoming ’obesity epidemic’. Rarely, however, is thought given to how these messages are interpreted and whether they are in fact inherently healthy. Education, Disordered Eating and Obesity Discourse investigates how ’body centred talk’ about weight, fat, food and exercise is recycled in schools, enters educational processes, and impacts on the identities and health of young people. Drawing on the experiences of young women who have developed eating disorders and research on international school curricula and the media, the authors challenge the veracity, substance and merits of contemporary ’obesity discourse’. By concentrating on previously unexplored aspects of the debate around weight and health, it is revealed how well-meaning advice can propel some children toward behaviour that seriously damages their health. This book is not only about ’eating disorders’ and the people affected, but the effects of obesity discourse on everyone’s health as it enters public policy, educational practice and the cultural fabric of our lives. It will interest students, teachers, doctors, health professionals and researchers concerned with obesity and weight issues. Selected Contents: 1. Introduction: The Rise and Rise of the Child Saving Movement 2. Body Pedagogies, Obesity Discourse and Disordered Eating 3. Sacred Knowledge, Science and Health Policy: Obesity as Instructional Discourse 4. Fat Ethics: Obesity as Regulative Discourse 5.

A Sociological Study Is obesity really a public health problem and what does the construction of obesity as a health problem mean for men? According to official statistics, the majority of men in nations such as England and the USA are overweight or obese. Public health officials, researchers, governments and various agencies are alarmed and have issued dire warnings about a global ‘obesity epidemic’. This perceived threat to public health seemingly legitimates declarations of war against what one US Surgeon General called ‘the terror within’. Yet, little is known about weight-related issues among everyday men in this context of symbolic or communicated violence. Men and the War on Obesity is an original, timely and controversial study. Using observations from a mixed-sex slimming club, interviews with men whom medicine might label overweight or obese and other sources, this study urges a rethink of weight or fat as a public health issue and sometimes private trouble. Recognizing the sociological wisdom that things are not as they seem, it challenges obesity warmongering and the many battles it mandates or incites. This important book could therefore help to change current thinking and practices not only in relation to men but also women and children who are defined as overweight, obese or too fat. It will be of interest to students and researchers of gender and the body within sociology, gender studies and cultural studies as well as public health researchers, policymakers and practitioners.

SPORT, EXERCISE AND HEALTH

Exercise Dependence

The Obesity Epidemic

John H. Kerr, Kokushikan University, Japan, Koenraad J. Lindner and Michelle Blaydon

Science, Morality and Ideology

Exercise dependence or addiction has been described as a ’positive addiction’, but it can have links with damaging dysfunctional and excessive behaviours, including eating disorders. Clinical and sport psychologists now acknowledge the condition and report that it can be found in recreational exercisers and competitive athletes. This is the first text to provide a comprehensive guide to exercise dependence. The text contains case studies and reviews research into exercise dependence in both ’exercise’ and ’sports’ contexts. The authors examine the condition in the widest sense, exploring different types of exercise dependence, risk factors associated with the condition, the experiences and motivational characteristics of sufferers, links with eating disorders, and a number of approaches to counselling. This text will be of significant interest to psychologists working in sport, health and clinical practice, as well as to athletes and sports coaches, particularly those involved in endurance sports associated with higher incidences of exercise dependence. Selected Contents: 1. Over the Top: An Introduction to Exercise Dependence 2. A Foundation for Understanding: Theoretical Approaches to the Study of Dependencies 3. Feel the Buzz: The Positive Psychological Pay-Off from Exercise 4. Driven to be Thin: Eating Disorders and How They Develop 5. Getting Thin to Win: Athletes Eating Disorders and Exercise Dependence 6. Hooked on Exercise: Personality and Motivation in Primary and Secondary Exercise Dependence 7. ’Can’t do Without my Exercise’: What Exercise Dependent People say about Themselves and their Dependency 8.

Michael Gard and Jan Wright ’The Obesity Epidemic is a superb contribution to the sociology of knowledge, and an essential text for anyone who wants to understand the current moral panic over fat.’ - Paul Campos, University of Colorado, author of The Obesity Myth ’The strength in this book lies in its ability to provide its readers with a critical view of obesity science by challenging them to go beyond traditional thinking ... reminding them of the harmful and stigmatizing consequences of adopting a ’war on obesity’ mentality ... This book is an essential read for anyone who is interested in health, obesity, health promotion, and public health.’ Krista Rondeau, Dieticians of Canada This is a controversial book about a critical theme in health and exercise studies. It provides much-needed, thorough and reflective analysis of the current state of research and is set to contribute a great deal to the debate. 2004: 234 x 156: 232pp Hb: 978-0-415-31895-2: £90.00 US $180.00 Pb: 978-0-415-31896-9: £27.50 US $52.95 eBook: 978-0-203-61930-8

Muslim Women and Sport Edited by Tansin Benn, University of Birmingham, UK, Gertrud Pfister, University of Copenhagen, Denmark and Haifaa Jawad, University of Birmingham, UK Examining the global experiences, challenges and achievements of Muslim women participating in sport, this important new study makes a profound contribution to our understanding of both contemporary Islam and the complexity and diversity of women’s lives. The book presents an overview of current research into women in Islam and looks closely at what Islam has to say about sporting participation in general. It explores the challenges and opportunities for women in sport in both Muslim and non-Muslim countries, and presents a series of extensive international case-studies and cross-cultural comparisons, including material on Iraq, Palestine and postwar Bosnia. The book also makes important recommendations for improving access to sport for this historically marginalised group. Muslim Women in Sport challenges a series of deeply held stereotypes and crosses those commonly quoted boundaries between ‘Islam and the West’ and between ‘East and West’. It makes fascinating reading for anyone with an interest in the interrelationships between sport, gender, culture and policy. December 2009 Hb: 978-0-415-49076-4: £75.00 eBook: 978-0-203-88063-0

Children, Obesity and Exercise

Disability and Youth Sport

Prevention, Treatment and Management of Childhood and Adolescent Obesity

Edited by Hayley Fitzgerald, Leeds Metropolitan University, UK How can or does youth sport reconcile what seems to be a fundamental contradiction between understandings of sport and disability? Has youth sport been challenged in anyway? Have alternative views of sport for disabled people been presented? Examining some of the latest research, this book considers the relationship between sport and disability by exploring a range of questions such as these.

Edited by Andrew P. Hills, Neil A. King and Nuala M. Byrne, all at Queensland University of Technology, Australia Throughout the developed world there is an increasing prevalence of childhood obesity. Because of this increase, and awareness of the risks to long term health that childhood obesity presents, the phenomena is now described by many as a global epidemic. Children, Obesity and Exercise provides sport, exercise and medicine students and professionals with an accessible and practical guide to understanding and managing childhood and adolescent obesity. It covers:

Disability and Youth Sport further challenges current thinking and therefore serves to stimulate progressive debate in this area. Drawing on a breadth of literature from sports pedagogy, sociology of sport, disability studies, inclusive education, and adapted physical activity, a socially critical dialogue is developed where the voices of young disabled people are central. Topics covered include:

• psycho-social aspects of childhood obesity

• researching disability and youth sport

• physical activity behaviours

• inclusion policy towards physical education and youth sport

• eating behaviours

• constructions of disability through youth sport

• measuring children’s behaviour

• the voices of young disabled people

• interventions for prevention and management of childhood obesity.

• the historical context of disability sport. With its comprehensive coverage and expert contributors from around the globe, this book is an ideal text for students at all levels with an interest in youth sport, disability studies, or sport policy.

INTERNATIONAL STUDIES IN PHYSICAL EDUCATION AND YOUTH SPORT Positive Youth Development Through Sport Edited by Nicholas L. Holt, University of Alberta, Canada The first Positive Youth Development title to focus on the role of sport, this book brings together high profile contributors from diverse disciplines to critically examine the ways in which sport can be and has been used to promote youth development.

Rethinking Gender and Youth Sport Edited by Ian Wellard, Canterbury Christchurch University, UK Series: International Studies in Physical Education and Youth Sport Much writing on gender and sport is focused upon the negative impact of girls’ exclusion from the arena, suggesting by inference that current practice in sport and physical education offers an uncomplicatedly positive sport experience for boys, and that gender, in and of itself, offers a simple starting point for research into young people’s experience of sport.

Young people are too frequently looked upon as problems waiting to be solved. From the perspective of Positive Youth Development (PYD), young people are understood to embody potential, awaiting development. Involvement with sport provides a developmental context that has been associated with PYD, but negative outcomes can also arise from sport participation and school PE. Sport itself does not lead to PYD; rather, it is the manner in which sport is structured and delivered to children that influences their development. Positive Youth Development Through Sport fills a void in the literature by bringing together experts from diverse disciplines to critically examine the ways in which sport can be and has been used to promote youth development. 2007: 234 x 156: 160pp Hb: 978-0-415-77152-8: £75.00 eBook: 978-0-203-94478-3

Philosophical Perspectives on Gender in Sports Edited by Charlene Weaving, St Francis Xavier University, Canada and Paul Davis, University of Edinburgh, UK This book draws together philosophically significant essays in the area of sex and gender in sport. While much has been written from a sociological and cultural studies perspective on the subjects of sex and gender in sport, this collection represents the first genuinely philosophically motivated anthology of essays on the subject. The collection covers five major themes: • sport and the construction of the female • objectification and the sexualisation of sport • sex boundaries: obstruction, naturalisation and opposition • homophobia • sex, gender and the practice of sport.

Sports, Virtues and Vices Morality Plays Mike J. McNamee, University of Wales Swansea, UK Sports have long played an important role in society. By exploring the evolving link between sporting behaviour and the prevailing ethics of the time this comprehensive and wide-ranging study illuminates our understanding of the wider social significance of sport. The primary aim of Sports, Virtues and Vices is to situate ethics at the heart of sports via ‘virtue ethical’ considerations that can be traced back to the gymnasia of ancient Greece. The central theme running through the book is that sports are effectively modern morality plays: universal practices of moral education for the masses and - when coached, officiated and played properly - a valuable vehicle for ethical development. Including a wealth of contemporary sporting examples, the book explores key ethical issues such as: • how the pursuit of sporting excellence can lead to harm • doping, greed and shame • biomedical technology as a challenge to the virtue of elite athletes • defining a ‘virtue ethical account’ in sport • family vices and virtues in sport. Written by one of the world’s foremost sports philosophers, this book powerfully unites the fields of sports ethics and medical ethics. It is essential reading for all students and scholars with an interest in the ethics and philosophy of sport.

PHILOSOPHY AND THE ETHICS OF SPORT The Legality of Boxing

Doping in Sport

A Punch Drunk Love?

Global Ethical Issues

Jack Anderson, Queen’s University Belfast, UK

Edited by Angela J. Schneider, The University of Western Ontario, Canada and Fan Hong, University College Cork, Ireland

Series: Birkbeck The first book of its kind dedicated to an assessment of the legality of boxing, The Legality of Boxing: A Punch Drunk Love? assesses the legal response to prize fighting and undertakes a current analysis of the status of boxing in both criminal legal theory and practice. In this book, Anderson exposes boxing’s ’exemption’ from contemporary legal and social norms. Reviewing all aspects of boxing - historical, legal, moral, ethical, philosophical, medical, racial and regulatory - he concludes that the supposition that boxing has a (consensual) immunity from the ordinary law of violence, based primarily on its social utility as a recognised sport, is not as robust as is usually assumed.

53

Series: Sport in the Global Society This book considers ethical arguments about performance enhancing drugs in sport in a global context. It examines: • the forces that are bringing about the debate of ethical issues in performance enhancing drugs in sport • the sources of ethical debates in different continents and countries • the variation of ethical arguments in different cultural, political, ideological and sports systems.

It: • suggests that the sport is extremely vulnerable to prosecution and might in fact already be illegal under English criminal law • outlines the physical and financial exploitation suffered by individual boxers both inside and outside the ring, suggesting that standard boxing contracts are coercive thus illegal and that boxers do not give adequate levels of informed consent to participate • advocates a number of fundamental reforms, including possibly that the sport will have to consider banning blows to the head

Whilst there has been a significant body of work that has looked at the importance of ethical issues in performance enhancing drugs in sport - there has been little, if any, consideration of the various ethical concepts in different countries and cultures involving sport. This is a major omission. This book fills the gap and provides a thorough review and analysis of the ethical literature on performance enhancing drugs in sport in the global society. It makes a major contribution to the worldwide anti-doping campaign in sport. This volume was previously published as a special issue of the journal Sport In Global Society.

• proposes the creation of a national boxing commission in the US and a similar entity in the United Kingdom, which together would attempt to restore the credibility of a sport long know as the red-light district of sports administration.

Ethics, Knowledge and Truth in Sports Research

Watching Sport

An Epistemology of Sport

Stephen Mumford, University of Nottingham, UK

Graham McFee, University of Brighton, UK

While philosophy of sport has tended to focus on the participator, the majority of people actually experience sport as a spectator. Mumford here considers the philosophical import of watching sport, suggesting that far from being passive, it is an aesthetic, a moral and an emotional experience for spectators.

The study of sport is characterised by its inter-disciplinarity, with researchers drawing on apparently incompatible research traditions and ethical benchmarks in the natural sciences and the social sciences, depending on their area of specialisation. In this groundbreaking study, Graham McFee argues that sound high-level research into sport requires a sound rationale for one’s methodological choices, and that such a rationale requires an understanding of the connection between the practicalities of researching sport and the philosophical assumptions which underpin them. By examining touchstone principles in research methodology, such as the contested ‘gold standard’ of voluntary informed consent in the natural sciences and the postmodern denial of ‘truth’ in the social sciences, McFee demonstrates that epistemology and ethics are inextricably linked. Drawing on a wide range of examples, from the laboratory to the sports field, McFee explores the concepts of ‘knowledge’ and ‘truth’ in sports research and makes a powerful case for a philosophical deepening of our approach to method and methodology in sport. This book is important reading for all advanced students and researchers working in sport, exercise and related disciplines.

Aesthetics, Ethics and Emotion for the Spectator

Delving into parallels with art and theatre in terms of a release from the self, this book outlines the aesthetic qualities of sport from the incidental beauty of a wellexecuted football pass to the enshrined artistic interpretation inherent in performed sports such as ice-skating or gymnastics. We then move on to consider the moral lessons to be learned from watching competitive sport, looking at the rewards of endeavour and the penalties of cheating and how these apply to a wider approach to life. Finally, sport is recognized as a focus of profound emotional experiences, bringing an essential human touch into a theoretical and academic forum of debate. With such universal themes, this book will appeal to a broad audience across philosophical disciplines and sports studies.

The Ethics of Doping and Anti-Doping

AVAILABLE ON INSPECTION

To Redeem the Soul of Sport

Exercise and Eating Disorders

Verner Moller, University of Aarhus, Denmark

An Ethical and Legal Analysis

With every positive drugs test the credibility and veracity of modern elite sport is diminished. In this radical and provocative critique of current anti-doping policy and practice, Verner Moller argues that the fight against doping promoted as an initiative to cleanse sport of cheats - is at heart nothing less than a battle to save sport from itself, located on the fault-line between the will to purity and the will to win.

Simona Giordano, University of Manchester, UK

Drawing on extensive and detailed case studies of doping in sport, and using a highly original blend of conceptual ideas from philosophy and sociology, Moller strongly criticises current anti-doping regimes and challenges our commonly held ideas about the nature of sport and the risks posed by drugs to health and fair play. He argues forcefully that we must understand the precarious position of the athlete and that only by containing coaches, doctors and drug companies within the anti-doping regime can we hope to ever make progress on this most important issue. Written in a lively and engaging style, and skilfully blending empirical case studies with cutting edge theory, this book represents an important statement on the nature of sport, morality and modernity. It is important reading for all serious students and scholars of the ethics, sociology and politics of sport. June 2009: 234 x 156: 184pp Hb: 978-0-415-48465-7: £80.00 Pb: 978-0-415-48466-4: £21.99

Eating disorders (EDs) have become a social epidemic in the developed world. This book addresses the close links between EDs and exercise, helping us to understand why the ‘typical’ person with an ED exercises to excessive, often harmful, levels. This is also the first book to examine this issue from an ethical and legal perspective, identifying the rights and responsibilities of people with EDs, their families, and the fitness professionals and clinicians that work with them. The book offers an accessible introduction to EDs and closely examines the concept of addiction. Drawing on a wide range of medical, psychological, physiological, sociological and philosophical sources, the book examines the benefits and risks of exercise for the ED population, explores the links between EDs and other abuses of the body in the sports environment, and addresses the issue of athletes with disordered eating behaviour. Importantly, the book also surveys current legislation and professional codes of conduct that guide the work of fitness professionals and clinicians in this area, and presents a clear and thorough set of case histories and action points to help professionals better understand, and care for, their clients with EDs. Exercise and Eating Disorders is important reading for students of applied ethics, medical ethics, and the ethics of sport, as well as for fitness professionals, psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, sports coaches, and sport and exercise scientists looking to better understand this important issue.

Pain and Injury in Sport Social and Ethical Analysis Edited by Sigmund Loland, Berit Skirstad and Ivan Waddington

Ethics, Money and Sport This Sporting Mammon Adrian Walsh, University of New England, Australia and Richard Giulianotti, Durham University, UK Written from the contrasting yet complementary perspectives of sociology and philosophy, this book explores the far-reaching ethical consequences of the runaway commodification of sport, focusing on those instances where commodification gives rise to morally undesirable consequences. Unique in its focus on the ethical dimension of the powerful economics of today’s sport, this book will be of interest, not only to those in the fields of sports studies and ethics of sport, but also to academics, researchers and students in philosophy of morality, sociology, and the ethics of globalization as viewed through the ultimate globalized phenomenon of modern sport.

RESEARCH METHODS 2ND EDITION

NEW

Statistical Misconceptions Schuyler W. Huck, University of Tennessee, USA Brief and inexpensive, this engaging book helps readers identify and then discard fifty-two misconceptions about data and statistical summaries. The focus is on major concepts contained in typical undergraduate and graduate courses in statistics, research methods, or quantitative analysis. Fun interactive Internet exercises that further promote undoing the misconceptions are found on the book’s website. The author’s accessible discussion of each misconception has five parts: • the misconception - a brief description of the misunderstanding • evidence that the misconception exists – examples and claimed prevalence • why the misconception is dangerous – consequence of having the misunderstanding • undoing the misconception – how to think correctly about the concept • internet assignment – an interactive activity to help readers gain a firm grasp of the statistical concept and overcome the misconception. The book’s statistical misconceptions are grouped into twelve chapters that match the topics typically taught in introductory/intermediate courses. However, each of the fifty-two discussions is self-contained, thus allowing the misconceptions to be covered in any order without confusing the reader. Organized and presented in this manner, the book is an ideal supplement for any standard textbook. Statistical Misconceptions is appropriate for courses taught in a variety of disciplines including psychology, medicine, education, nursing, business, and the social sciences. The book will also benefit independent researchers interested in undoing their statistical misconceptions.

Data Analysis A Model Comparison Approach Charles M. Judd and Gary H. McClelland, both at University of Colorado at Boulder, USA and Carey S. Ryan, University of Nebraska at Omaha, USA Intended for data analysis rather than statisticians, this rewritten classic text features new examples and topics. Substantially reorganized, this book features the modelcomparison approach that provides readers with an intuitive understanding of statistical procedures so they can learn the most powerful techniques and then apply them to their research questions. The first few chapters introduce the major statistical concepts needed to understand the chapters that review regression analysis, analysis of variance, mediational analyses, non-independent or correlated errors, multilevel modeling, and outliers and error violations. Intended for advanced courses in experimental design, data analysis, or quantitative techniques taught in psychology, education, business, and the social sciences, this book also appeals to researchers interested in analyzing data.

Applied Multivariate Statistics for the Social Sciences James P. Stevens, University of Cincinnati, USA This best-selling text is written for those who use, rather than develop statistical methods. Dr Stevens focuses on a conceptual understanding of the material rather than on proving results. Helpful narrative and numerous examples enhance understanding and a chapter on matrix algebra serves as a review. Annotated printouts from SPSS and SAS indicate what the numbers mean and encourage interpretation of the results. In addition to demonstrating how to use these packages, the author stresses the importance of checking the data, assessing the assumptions, and ensuring adequate sample size by providing guidelines so that the results can be generalized. The book is noted for its extensive applied coverage of MANOVA, its emphasis on statistical power, and numerous exercises including answers to half.
