English | Aug 25, 2009 | ISBN: 0415443644 | 451 Pages | PDF | 5 MB

Since the nineteenth century the USA has served as an international model for business, lifestyle and sporting success. Yet whilst the language of sport seems to be universal, American sports culture remains highly distinctive. Why is this so? How should we understand American sport? What can we learn about America by analyzing its sports culture?
offers discussion and critical analysis of the everyday sporting and leisure activities of ‘ordinary' Americans as well as the ‘big three' (football, baseball, basketball), and elite sports heroes. Throughout the book, the development of American sport is linked to political, social, gender and economic issues, as well as the orientations and cultures of the multilayered American society with its manifold regional, ethnic, social, and gendered diversities.
