Commodified and Criminalized: New Racism and African Americans in Contemporary Sports (Perspectives on a Multiracial America) pdf


David J. Leonard, C. Richard King ebook


Commodified and Criminalizedis timely and provocative—a direct assault on anti-Black racism in the contemporary moment. In chapters ranging in focus from Tiger Woods to Serena Williams, the collected authors challenge us to rethink the racial politics of sport and the cultural logics of its production, consumption, and representation. It is a must-read for anyone seeking to better understand the complex and contradictory discourses at work in the simultaneous celebration and demonization of Blackness and Black athletes. (Michael D. Giardina )

David J. Leonard and C. Richard King have brought together an impressive collection of essays which demonstrate the significant role elite level sport plays in forging racial meaning and social relations. The book?s ten essays?written by leading sport scholars who draw from diverse methodological and theoretical approaches?collectively demonstrate the various ways in which new racism is enacted and challenged in the 21st Century. Analyses of the discourses associated with such visible sport stars as KobeBryant, Tiger Woods, Venus and Serena Williams, Shani Davis, and Sheryl Swoopes reveal that far from a bastion of meritocracy, elite level sport is embedded in a commercial logic that simultaneously celebrates and demonizes black sporting bodies. Importantly, Commodified and Criminalized: New Racism and African Americans in Contemporary Sport is more than another book about sport?it serves as an invaluable resource for those seeking to understand the complex workings of whiteness, power and resistance in contemporary times. Mary G. McDonald, Professor in the Department of Kinesiology and Health; and, the Western Program for Individualized Studies, Miami University. Former President of the North American Society for the Sociology of Sport. (McDonald, Mary G. )

A provocative, insightful and important survey of developments at the interface of diversity, sport and society and a must read for all who would understand the state, trajectory, and implications of human relations in American sports at the onset of the second decade of the 21st century.
