This collection illustrates the expansiveness of an interdisciplinary approach to the study of sport. While rooted in anthropology, these essays consider American sports in their social, economic, cultural and political aspects, charting their evolution. The book draws from history, sociology, and political science; as well as considering the relationship between the developed and developing world; and culture and masculinity.

The first part of the book considers the local and global interplay of professional baseball, covering:

  • Major League Baseball's impact on the Dominican Republic
  • nationalism and baseball on the Mexican/US border
  • the globalizing forces of baseball as an industry.

The second part of the book is concerned with the cultural examination of the responsiveness of masculinity to social and cultural forces, examining:

  • the exaggerated world of bodybuilders in Southern California
  • the cross-cultural comparisons of male behaviour on a bi-national baseball team in Mexico
  • the historical examination of Jews in American sport.

This book was previously published as a special issue of Sport in Society

This momentous four-volume work examines and details the cultural aspects of sport and how sport pervasively reflects and affects myriad aspects of American society from the early 1900s to the present day. Written in a straightforward, readable manner, the entries cover both historical and contemporary aspects of sport and American culture. Unlike purely historical encyclopedias on sports, the contributions within these volumes cover related subject matter such as poetry, novels, music, films, plays, television shows, art and artists, mythologies, artifacts, and people. While this encyclopedia set is ideal for general readers who need information on the diverse aspects of sport in American culture for research purposes or are merely reading for enjoyment, the detailed nature of the entries will also prove useful as an initial source for scholars of sport and American culture. Each entry provides a number of both print and online resources for further investigation of the topic.

Scott Potter introduces thoughtful readers to the intellectual adventures of the human race where your common sense will be challenged. The author will be your guide as you plunge the depths of thought and language, cognitive development and epistemology. What do we know? How do we know? From there, you will cover an overview of American history as you've never seen it. The author strives to avoid jargon and instead use examples from popular culture and today's headlines. But this comes at a cost of not directly addressing every possible objection astute readers will have; therefore, endnotes and bibliography are provided, and your indulgence and sense of adventure is all that is needed.

Two men who share a passion for speed find out what can happen if they slow down enough for a Grand romance. Paolo's more than just a football player-he plays at life. But underneath the party boy image, he's well aware that his career is stagnating and a big move might be needed. Before anything like that can be decided, though, he's going to enjoy his annual trip to Monte Carlo for the Grand Prix. The only thing Johann loves more than his Formula One racing is gambling in the glittering atmosphere of Monaco. This year, he finds that high stakes applies to more than just cards-his heart is going all in and if he bets it all and loses, it could cost him everything.
