Product Description

<p>This book explores the lived experiences of boxers in a French <i>banlieue</i>, largely populated by people from working-class and immigrant backgrounds. Jérôme Beauchez, who joined in the men’s daily workouts for many years, analyzes the act of boxing as a high-stakes confrontation that extends well beyond the walls of the gym. Exploring the physical and existential realities of combat, the author provides a multifaceted “thick description” of this world and shows that the violence faced by the gym’s members is not so much to be found in the ring as in the adversity of everyday racism and social exclusion. Boxing can therefore be understood as an act of resistance that is about more than simply fighting an opponent and that reflects all the existential struggles facing these men who are both stigmatized and socially dominated by race and class.</p>

<p>The games that human societies devised over the centuries can be considered one of the most comprehensive and fertile symbolic systems ever created by human ingenuity. In all societies, members feel compelled to interact and communicate with each other as much as possible. As linguistic creatures, humans use language to establish social and interpersonal contacts. Games are a device to enable such connections.</p><p>Robert Perinbanayagam examines how players value games. He assesses games as systems that embody metaphysics and pragmatic action. He then examines various religious ideas and how participants reference respective approaches to game playing.</p><p>Perinbanayagam argues that games are forms of activity in which the human agent as an actor engages with others in various interactional situations. Such engagement creates dramas in which agents assume identities, give play to emotions and enrich their selves. He also examines the issue of game writing, particularly how selected writers have used game structures as narrative devices in their work.</p><p></p>

This book was chosen by the Mantuan committee to be the official publication to celebrate Tazio Nuvolari’s centenary and carries a foreword by the Mayor of Mantua, Sergio Genovesi. Translation and editing are by noted vintage Alfa Romeo authority, Angela Cherrett.<br /><br />Trazio Nuvolari hardly needs an introduction; his exploits and racing prowess have become legend throughout the world. In his homeland of Italy, his name is a national icon: his fame reflected in everything from songs to the use of his name to symbolise every kind of daring and recklessness at the wheel.<br /><br />We’ve all heard the wonderful, exciting stories about the Flying Mantuan’s exploits at the wheel and now, over forty years since his death, no doubt many believe these tales to be fantasies – ordinary events embellished and exaggerated by the passage of time, constant retelling and hero worship. This book re-examines the legend and, in separating fact from fiction, reveals that Tazio’s best known feats are based on fact and have not been exaggerated at all! Indeed, this book will make the Italian racing red flame of the Nuvolari legend burn even brighter. Amazingly, author Valerio Moretti’s research has been so deep that he has been able to find and include in this book contemporary race reports of almost every race – no matter how small – in which Tazio took part from his first motorcycle race in June 1920 to his last race, driving a Cisitalia Abarth, in April 1950. The Tazio Nuvolari legend grew gradually through over three hundred races from almost grudging acknowledgement of a newcomer’s bravery, through awe of his apparent recklessness to the peak of his popularity when he was regarded as superhuman.<br /><br />Included in the book is a summary of every machine – two and four-wheeled – raced by Tazio.<br /><br />eBook ISBN: 978-1-787112-38-4 (9781787112384)<br />Print ISBN: 9781874105374 (9781874105374)
