Sports Immortals by Williams
Book Description"The Sports Immortals "is the first study to systematically apply the classic theories of psychology and anthropology to sport to present a model of the ways in which we create mythical figures out of actual individuals. Peter Williams begins with the theories of thinkers like Jung, Frazer, and Otto Rank and then shows their application, first to sport itself, then, more specifically, to American sport, and particularly to baseball. The result is a clear illustration of the way in which we insist on making archetypes out of our heroes, and how this process is the same today as it was in ancient Athens and before.

In his remarks upon being named Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams spoke of the Christian creed and Christian vision (that) have in them a life and a richness that can embrace and transfigure all the complexities of human life. Confidence in that creed, he said, saves us from being led by fashion.
