Description - Power at Play by Michael Alan Messner

"Jock culture," the culture of sports, plays an important role in the definition of American masculinity. This text is based on interviews with 30 school, college and professional athletes. ichael Messner sets out to discover what effect sports has and can have on men's lives, and their attitudes and self-image in the social world of sport. As a result, this text is an examination of the heartland of masculinity, of sport's compelling allure and its ability to bestow social status, as well as an examination of its dark side.
