This book acknowledges the central role of bodies in the social construction of gender and, in this case, ideas about masculinity. 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 to women's.
