Sporting Sounds by John Bale

Book Description

Music and sport are both highly significant cultural forms, yet the substantial and longstanding connections between the two have largely been overlooked. Sporting Sounds addresses this oversight in an intriguing and innovative collection of essays. With contributions from leading international psychologists, sociologists, historians, musicologists and specialists in sports and cultural studies, the book illuminates our understanding of the vital part music has played in the performance, reception and commodification of sport. It explores a fascinating range of topics and case studies, including: * The use of music to enhance sporting performance * Professional applications of music in sport * Sporting anthems as historical commemorations * Music at the Olympics * Supporter rock music in Swedish sport * Caribbean cricket and calypso music From local fan cultures to international mega-events, music and sport are inextricably entwined. Sporting Sounds is a stimulating and illuminating read for anybody with an interest in either of these cultural forms.

Four-Minute Mile by John Bale Four-Minute Mile, Paperback (August 2014)

The four-minute mile was roundly believed to be impossible until Roger Bannister shattered the illusion with half a second to spare in May 1954. The essays in this book look at the background to Bannister's achievement and the meaning that was ascribed to it by the media and the public at large.
