Though an integral element of sport sociology, the study of masculinities in sport has been largely confined to Western sports such as American football. This book provides a more expanded view, offering tantalising insights into sport and manliness from culturally and geographically distinct perspectives. Editors Jorge Knijnik and Daryl Adair, along with a group of international researchers, articulate how various types of masculinities can be played out in different sports by drawing from personal experiences of athletes, investigating the cultural -- and even global -- impact of male achievements in sport, and comparing men's experiences in sport with women's. While maintaining the body's pivotal role in the social construction of gender, Embodied Masculinities provides the sport sociological literature with an innovative and truly global perspective on what it means to "be a man", whether on the field, on the court, or in the saddle.
