Critical Readings by David Rowe

Book Description

"Critical Readings: Sport, Culture and the Media" contains a broad range of essays on the relationships between sport, culture and the media. Featuring a mixture of classic works and recent texts, the Reader provides students, lecturers and researchers with an essential core of readings on the topic. The readings examine media and sport in Europe, North and South America, Australia, Asia and Africa and explore topics such as: sport as entertainment - the role of mass communications; the manufacture of sports news for the daily press; the televised sports manhood formula; women, sport and globalization; sport on the information superhighway; advertising sportswear to black audiences; and, mega-events and media culture - sport and the Olympics.Written to complement the key textbook in the area, "Sport, Culture and Media", this collection of critical readings can also be used independently, ideally in undergraduate and postgraduate studies in culture and media, sociology, sport and leisure studies, communication, race, ethnicity and gender. The essays are by: John Amis, David L. Andrews, Ketra L. Armstrong, Frank B. Ashley, Joan Chandler, George B.Cunningham, Michele Dunbar, Laurel Davis, John Goldlust, Darnell Hunt, Kyle W. Kusz, James F. Larson, Geoffrey Lawrence, Mark D. Lowes, David McGimpsey, Jim McKay, Miquel de Moragas Spa, Michael A. Messner, Toby Miller, Robert E. Rinehart, Nancy K. Rivenburgh, David Rowe, Maurice Roche, Michael Sagas, Michael Silk, Trevor Slack, Deborah Stevenson, Brian Stoddart, Lawrence A. Wenner, and Brian J. Wrigley
