Abstract:

"From the city courts of Harlem to the church halls of Indiana, pickup basketball culture is intensely local and reflects the histories and identities of its players. In Give and Go, Thomas McLaughlin examines how players put into play a loose set of values and ethical styles that influence how they think, Feel, move, and relate to others within the community. This book reflects the author's personal experience and observation of the game, through the lens of contemporary cultural theory, and also examines the representation of basketball culture in popular media, including the films Hoop Dreams, Hoosiers, and White Men Can't Jump." --Book Jacket.
