Anthropologists bring new perspectives to the study of sports
In The Anthropology of Sport: Bodies, Borders, Biopolitics (University of California Press), authors Niko Besnier, Susan Brownell and Thomas F. Carter explore how sport both shapes and is shaped by the social, cultural, political, and historical contexts in which we live. We asked Dr. Sepandarmas Mashreghi to read and review their effort for idrottsforum.org. Her well-balanced review points out the interesting and scholarly rewarding features that by far overshadow the sometimes monotonous tone.
