Sport in American culture : from Ali to X-games

"Sport plays an undeniable role in defining America's national identity. It permeates the language, saturates the airwaves, and affects all Americans whether they want it to or not. Sport in American Culture examines the impact of sport on American society from what Americans eat and drink to how they choose heroes and establish values. The book collects in one volume more than 400 A-Z entries from more than 200 distinguished contributors, who examine a broad range of topics."--Jacket
