Product Overview

An international array of authors, including some prominent extreme athletes like Jake Burton and Arlo Eisenberg, look at a variety of issues and concerns within the new action extreme sports that are gaining popularity throughout the world. For each sport, an interpretation is presented through two essays: one written by a scholar active in some aspect of research for the given activity, and another by a practitioner/ athlete who writes from the inside out. The juxtaposed essays confront questions about the essence of sport such as, What is sport?; How does it originate?; and What is its use, value, and function? This book offers a fascinating look at how twentieth and twenty-first century sport forms emerge, proliferate, and take hold in a sport-crazy world. *Author: Sydnor, Synthia/ Sydnor, Synthia/ Rinehart, Robert E. *Series Title: Suny Series on Sport, Culture, and Social Relations *Binding Type: Hardcover *Number of Pages: 437 *Publication Date: 2003/03/01 *Language: English *Dimensions: 9.10 x 6.20 x 1.40 inches
