Martin, R. and Miller, T. (EDs) (1999) SportCult. University of Minnesota Press.


Although sport is pervasive in our society, its significance as a cultural phenomenon remains largely misunderstood, and its singular ability to entertain, inspire, and unite is frequently taken for granted. This volume offers a variety of perspectives on the cultural politics of sport. SportCult deftly explores sport as a cultural frame of reference for such critical issues as national identity, the idea of the body, global capitalism, and the politics of representation.
