Everyday Masculinities and Extreme Sport: Male Identity and Rock Climbing
About the Book
This book offers the first in depth study of this one particular extreme sport, rock climbing, and uses it as a case study to examine at how men "do" masculinity in a sporting environment. The book offers a fresh and innovative perspective on issues surrounding masculine identity, and challenges traditional approaches to sport studies. It also presents new ways of conceptualizing the relationship between the everyday and the pursuit of the extraordinary through sport. Drawing on insights from sociology, gender, masculinity studies and sports studies, this book will be of interest to a broad range of students and researchers in these areas.
