The multiple pleasures derived from sport are important in constituting subjectivities, social belongings, nationalistic fervors and for some, even reasons for living. This volume examines the role of sporting pleasure in identity formation, social relations, and social transformation. It aims to provide a greater understanding of sport, and the contemporary cultural and social issues connected to it.
