The essays in this volume use football to create a dialogue between history and other disciplines, including art criticism, philosophy, and political science. The study of football provides fertile ground for interdisciplinary initiatives and this volume explores the disciplinary boundaries that are shifting beneath our feet. Traditional disciplines in the humanities and social sciences have come to embrace diverse research methodologies and the increased scholarly attention to football over the past decade reflects both the startling popularity of the sport and the trends in historical scholarship that have been termed the cultural, interpretive, or linguistic turns. This volume includes work on gender, sexuality, and ethnicity, which have challenged disciplinary fault-lines.

Set in the near future, Terra Ludus follows a group of friends as their lives are turned upside down by the downstream effects of the actions of the protagonist, Daniela Bartoli. Five years after the professional International Womens Basketball League is unceremoniously dumped by its parent mens organization, Daniela is working in Los Angeles as a freelance journalist and playing regular weekend pick-up games with her friends Mike, Constantin, Dominic and Simeon. Her relatively simple life changes almost overnight after her vlog, challenging a powerful media corporation to step up and broadcast womens basketball, goes viral. The publicity sets off a chain reaction that brings the sport back into international prominence and sucks Daniela into a vortex of media and public visibility that leads her to question what is really important. In an imagined context where all professional sport takes place in a single country -something like a permanent Olympic Games - we follow a cast of characters with very different viewpoints on a roller-coaster, year-long, journey as they adjust to the new womens league. Although fictional, Terra Ludus is grounded in decades of researching, theorizing, teaching and writing about womens sport and media representation. Terra Ludus can be read entirely for pleasure or used as supplemental reading in courses in sport, media, gender, communication, journalism, sociology, creative writing, performance, physical education and cultural studies. Toni Bruce turns her keen literary eye on the spectacular failure of sport studies scholars and activists to convince mainstream sports media to increase coverage of womens sport. Her gripping story turns this narrative on its head, and shows all of us how things could be different. Terra Ludus shows us how to move forward. This is the power of storytelling. Norman K. Denzin, Ph.D., University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Using popular culture pedagogically to think about popular culture and power, Terra Ludus is a valuable tool for critical thought. Lawrence Grossberg, Ph.D., University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Terra Ludus is a sine qua non tale about Third Wave Feminism. Set in a future society, it asks: What could happen if dominant ideas about women, sports, sexuality, ethnicity and the media left-over from the Twentieth-Century are challenged head-on by women athletes? Finding out will keep readers reading, students buzzing. Laurel Richardson, Ph.D., The Ohio State University Toni Bruce, Ph.D., is a sport sociologist and media scholar at the Faculty of Education and Social Work, University of Auckland, New Zealand.
Meet the Female Chauvinist Pig - the new brand of "empowered woman" who wears the Playboy bunny as a talisman, bares all for Girls Gone Wild, pursues casual sex as if it were a sport, and embraces "raunch culture" wherever she finds it. If male chauvinist pigs of years past thought of women as pieces of meat, Female Chauvinist Pigs of today are doing them one better, making sex objects of other women - and of themselves. They think they´re being brave, they think they´re being funny, but in Female Chauvinist Pigs, New York magazine writer Ariel Levy asks if the joke is on them. In her quest to uncover why this is happening, Levy interviews college women who flash for the cameras on spring break and teens raised on Paris Hilton and breast implants. She examines a culture in which every music video seems to feature a stripper on a pole, the memoirs of porn stars are climbing the best-seller lists, Olympic athletes parade their Brazilian bikini waxes in the pages of Playboy, and thongs are marketed to prepubescent girls. Levy meets the high-powered women who create raunch culture - the new oinking women warriors of the corporate and entertainment worlds who eagerly defend their efforts to be "one of the guys". And she traces the history of this trend back to conflicts between the women´s movement and the sexual revolution long left unresolved. In the tradition of Susan Faludi´s Backlash and Naomi Wolf´s The Beauty Myth, Levy pulls apart the myth of the Female Chauvinist Pig and argues that what has come to pass for liberating rebellion is actually a kind of limiting conformity. Irresistibly witty and wickedly intelligent, Female Chauvinist Pigs makes the case that the rise of raunch does not represent how far women have come, it only proves how far they have left to go. 1.

"Let´s DP My Wife: Bases Loaded" Dave´s wife, Ella, loves to play baseball in the local league just as much as Dave loves coming to the games and cheering her on.

"Let´s DP My Wife: On the Green" Vance´s boss is tired of hearing about his new commercial development project and has finally put his foot down, forbidding Vance from ever bringing it up around the office again. But when the two of them and their loving wives go out for a game of golf, Vance sees the perfect opportunity to take his final shot at pitching the project.

The creative mechanical genius of Monster Garage meets the existential sexuality of Rebel Without a Cause – Wildman is a little brother’s homage to the coolest big brother any boy ever had. It’s the true story of R.L. Peyton who was, by anyone’s definition, a wild, wild man who lived as fast as he raced. Imagine if Albert Einstein had concentrated all of his genius on building the fastest dragster ever made and had the personality, good looks, and charisma of James Dean - that was R.L. Peyton. ´´The Wildman” was the ultimate underdog. A racer in a high stakes games with no bankroll, R. L. would beg, borrow, or jerry rig whatever he needed to race. He became the hands-down crowd favorite at every track because they knew the Wildman would blow up, crash, or set a new track record every time he got in the car. Before drag racing was legal and there was anything like the NHRA, Wildman was blowing the hoods off Mustangs in souped-up Studebakers on the swampy back roads of Dade County. In the early ´60s there was already a full-blown drug subculture in South Florida and the same men that dealt bails of pot and kilos of coke had access to ´´hot” Chrysler hemis. Wildman ran with the outlaws because he had to get a fix for his racing habit. When the sudden explosion of creative energy in the ´60s began blowing the doors off music, writing, art, and political institutions, R. L. was challenging everything about mechanics, automobiles, and racing. These two brothers shared every car they built together, every race, every wreck, every cheap motel, and every set of beautiful twins they met. R.L. and Hap came up against county sheriffs and city cops, race officials and the other drivers, and a limited income. Nothing could stop them. But unlike a lot of geniuses who were driven to excellence and pushed the envelope, Wildman earned the respect and admiration of everyone. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Harrison Peyton.

This ethnographic study of a mixed martial arts gym in Thailand describes the everyday practices and lived experiences of martial art practitioners. Through the lived realities and everyday experiences of these fighters, this book seeks to examine why foreigners invest their time and money to train in martial arts in Thailand; the linkages between the embodiment of martial arts and masculinity; how foreign bodies consume martial arts and what they get out of it; the sensory reconfiguration required of a fighter; and the impact of transnational flows on bodily dispositions and knowledge. The author argues that being a successful fighter entails not only sensitized awareness and knowledge of ones body, but also a reconfiguration of the senses.
