Description - Boxing by Kasia Boddy

From ancient Greece to the present day, Boddy charts the myriad incarnations of boxing in Western society and the larger-than life figures who have played pivotal roles in its history. The book traces the portrayal of the sport in literature and media, from Greek odes to hip-hop lyrics to silent films, and shows the sport to be a complex cultural act that transforms the voyeur into a participant.
