Bodybuilding, Drugs and Risk

Bodybuilding, Drugs and Risk

Autore: Lee Monaghan ,

Numero di pagine: 232

Current popular interest in bodies, fitness, sport and active lifestyles, has made bodybuilding more visible and acceptable within mainstream society than ever before. However, the association between bodybuilding, drugs and risk has contributed to a negative image of an activity which many people find puzzling. Using data obtained from participant observation and interviews, this book explores bodybuilding subculture from the perspective of the bodybuilder. It looks at: * How bodybuilders try to maintain competent social identities * How they manage the risks of using steroids and other physique-enhancing drugs * How they understand the alleged steroid-violence link * How they 'see' the muscular body. Through systematic exploration it becomes apparent that previous attempts to explain bodybuilding in terms of 'masculinity-in-crisis' or gender insecurity are open to question. Different and valuable insights into what sustains and legitimizes potentially dangerous drug-taking activities are provided by this detailed picture of a huge underground subculture.

A Genealogy of Male Bodybuilding

A Genealogy of Male Bodybuilding

Autore: Dimitris Liokaftos ,

Numero di pagine: 192

Bodybuilding has become an increasingly dominant part of popular gym culture within the last century. Developing muscles is now seen as essential for both general health and high performance sport. At the more extreme end, the monstrous built body has become a pop icon that continues to provoke fascination. This original and engaging study explores the development of male bodybuilding culture from the nineteenth century to the present day, tracing its transformations and offering a new perspective on its current extreme direction. Drawing on archival research, interviews, participant observation, and discourse analysis, this book presents a critical mapping of bodybuilding’s trajectory. Following this trajectory through the wider sociocultural changes it has been a part of, a unique combination of historical and empirical data is used to investigate the aesthetics of bodybuilding and the shifting notions of the good body and human nature they reflect. This book will be fascinating reading for all those interested in the history and culture of bodybuilding, as well as for students and researchers of the sociology of sport, gender and the body.

Body Modification

Body Modification

Autore: Mike Featherstone ,

Numero di pagine: 347

This fascinating collection explores the growing range of body modification practices such as piercing, tattooing, branding, cutting and inserting implants, which have sprung up recently in the West. It asks whether this implies that we are returning to traditional tribal practices of inscribing identities onto bodies on the part of 'modern primitives', or is body modification better understood as purely cosmetic and decorative with body markings merely temporary signs of transferable loyalties? Contributors address the question of the permanence of body transformation through fitness regimes and body building; look at the French performance artist Orlan and the Australian performance artist Stelarc who explored Western standard o

Mr. America

Mr. America

Autore: John D. Fair ,

Numero di pagine: 473

For most of the twentieth century, the “Mr. America” image epitomized muscular manhood. From humble beginnings in 1939 at a small gym in Schenectady, New York, the Mr. America Contest became the world’s premier bodybuilding event over the next thirty years. Rooted in ancient Greek virtues of health, fitness, beauty, and athleticism, it showcased some of the finest specimens of American masculinity. Interviewing nearly one hundred major figures in the physical culture movement (including twenty-five Mr. Americas) and incorporating copious printed and manuscript sources, John D. Fair has created the definitive study of this iconic phenomenon. Revealing the ways in which the contest provided a model of functional and fit manhood, Mr. America captures the event’s path to idealism and its slow descent into obscurity. As the 1960s marked a turbulent transition in American society—from the civil rights movement to the rise of feminism and increasing acceptance of homosexuality—Mr. America changed as well. Exploring the influence of other bodily displays, such as the Mr. Universe and Mr. Olympia contests and the Miss America Pageant, Fair focuses on commercialism, size...

Autore: Jason L. Powell , Tim Owen ,

Numero di pagine: 200

There has been an array of literature on the notion of 'postmodernism' in social science literature in recent years. This exciting book focuses on three broad continuities: one, debunking the central theoretical tenets of postmodernism with reference to identity, methodology, governance and modernist theory; two, the book engages with current social issues and events in popular culture: for example, film; professional power, masculinity and terrorism; three, the book also rethinks postmodernism in light of under-researched variables of analysis of time and ageing, the 'body', 'biology' and 'choice'.

The Body in Qualitative Research

The Body in Qualitative Research

Autore: John Richardson , Alison Shaw ,

Numero di pagine: 197

First published in 1998, the three main themes of the book are representation (images and symbols which depict the body), regulation (the social control of bodies) and resistance (strategies which challenge dominant representation and regulation). These themes run through the various chapters which span a wide spectrum of bodily topics. The chapters deal not only with major issues such as media images of male and female bodies, but also with neglected problems such as workplace bullying, unusual settings such as residential institutions for trainee clergy and 'exotica' such as naturism and fetish practices. The topics range from the healthy and sporting - bodybuilding clubs and rugby culture - through to the health problems of Crohn’s Disease sufferers and the self-harm practices of women in bail hostels. Also, the book sheds light on the ageing process by including not just young people (teenage girls in physical education lessons) but also the older and increasingly assertive generation of 'wrinklies.'

First, Second, and Other Selves

First, Second, and Other Selves

Autore: Jennifer Whiting ,

In her essay collection First, Second, and Other Selves: Essays on Friendship and Personal Identity, well-known scholar of ancient philosophy Jennifer Whiting gathers her previously published essays taking Aristotle's theories on friendship as a springboard to engage with contemporary philosophical work on personal identity and moral psychology. Whiting examines three themes throughout the collection, the first being psychic contingency, or the belief that the psychological structures characteristic of human beings may in fact vary, not just from one cultural (or socio-historical) context to another, but also from one individual to another. The second theme is the belief that friendship informs an understanding of the nature of the self, an idea that springs from Whiting's uncommon reading of Aristotle's writings on friendship. Specifically, Whiting explains a scenario in which a "virtuous agent" adopts a kind of impersonal attitude both towards herself and towards her "character" friends, loving both because they are virtuous; this scenario ties in with an examination of the Aristotelian concept of the ideal friend as an "other self," or a friendship that evolves from character...

Individuality, the Impossible Project

Individuality, the Impossible Project

Autore: Carlo Strenger ,

Numero di pagine: 251

Whilst noting that psychoanalysis is one of the most important voices in present culture to maintain the importance of individuality, the author takes the postmodern view that gender, race, social class, and religion do not define the individual's essence. The book explores some strategies of self-creation and the protest against fate that motivates them. It combines the psychoanalytic idea of the deep self with the postmodern belief that the individual should be free to shape her or his life according to freely chosen values and aesthetic preferences. Drawing on the storytelling modes of Freud, Klein, Winnicott, Lacan and others, the book charts some strategies of self-creation via the stories of five people who sought therapeutic help because their project of self-creation had reached an impasse.

Bodymakers

Bodymakers

Autore: Leslie Heywood ,

Numero di pagine: 225

"A highly unique and refreshing contribution. Heywood not only theorizes the relationships among feminism, activism, and bodybuilding but also provides what so many works on built female bodies lack-a feminine historical context. . . . Heywood concludes with a call for women to 'feel our muscles, our power, our terrible, wonderful, monstrous strengths' by leaving behind aerobics, replacing light weights with heavy ones, and claiming our right to take up space. . . . Like all influential and groundbreaking works, this book raises new and important questions that should provide grist for much feminist debate and scholarship in coming years."-Signs "Bodymakers is most ambitious in terms of its engagement with feminist cultural criticism and its unconventional scope. Heywood comments on film, novels, magazine pictures, popular criticisms of feminism, the J. Crew catalog, [and] the concept of power feminism."-Gender and Society "In this brilliantly insightful and immensely readable book, Leslie Heywood makes us think about women's body building in an entirely new way. She argues persuasively that, far from being an individualistic, apolitical act, it is a powerful form of resistance,...

Weighty Issues

Weighty Issues

Autore: Jeffery Sobal , Donna Maurer ,

Numero di pagine: 260

Many people consider their weight to be a personal problem; when, then, does body weight become a social problem? Until recently, the major public concern was whether enough food was consistently available. As food systems began to provide ample and stable amounts of food, questions about food availability were replaced with concerns about "ideal" weights and appearance. These interests were aggregated into public concerns about defining people as "too fat" and "too thin." Social constructionist perspectives can contribute to the understanding of weight problems because they focus attention on how these problems are created, maintained, and promoted within various social environments. While there is much objectivist research concerning weight problems, few studies address the socially constructed aspects of fatness and thinness. This book however draws from and contributes to social constructionist perspectives. The chapters in this volume offer several perspectives that can be used to understand the way society deals with fatness and thinness. The contributors consider historical foundations, medical models, gendered dimensions, institutional components, and collective...

Strong and Hard Women

Strong and Hard Women

Autore: Tanya Bunsell ,

Numero di pagine: 200

Females with large muscles evoke strong reactions from men and women, often involving disgust, discomfort, anger and threat. The controversial nature of female bodybuilding has caused a significant rupture on feminist ground. Whilst proponents claim that female bodybuilding is a way of empowering and liberating women, others see it as a form of corporeal entrapment. This book investigates the controversy. Do women who pump iron resist physical restrictions of imposed femininity, or are they engaged in an ultimately oppressive quest for ‘perfect bodies’? In an original two year ethnographic study based in the South of England, Tanya Bunsell immersed herself into the world of female bodybuilders. By mapping these extraordinary women’s lives, the research illuminates the pivotal spaces and essential lived experiences that make up the female bodybuilder. Whilst the women appear to be embarking on an ‘empowering’ radical body project for themselves, the consequences of their activity remains culturally ambivalent. This research exposes the ‘Janus-faced’ nature of female bodybuilding, exploring the ways in which the women negotiate, accommodate and resist pressures to...

Numero di pagine: 184

Dave Reed works the midnight shift in the Message Watch Office at CIA Headquarters in Langley, Virginia. On a lark, he and a coworker drive to Paw Paw, West Virginia, to investigate claims of strange, glowing objects in the sky. Reed and his coworker aren't the only ones interested in what's going on in Paw Paw. Lester Stone, a senior operations officer for a nameless, ultra-secret government project will be in Paw Paw on official project business-to do whatever it takes to diffuse the situation, and to make it look as if nothing out of the ordinary is happening in that little town. When Dave returns home from Paw Paw, he discovers that the FBI is waiting to interrogate him. Falsely accused of espionage and with no clue about the whereabouts of his coworker, Dave submits to a lie detector test and "polygraphic hypnosis." His story is practically impossible for his interrogators to believe, but the sensors attached to Dave's head and torso indicate that he has to be telling the truth.

Autore: Joe Rothstein ,

Numero di pagine: 254

She’s a charismatic Mexican-American heiress, running for re-election as president of the United States. They are a ruthless international conspiracy with, literally, a killer agenda, willing to do anything required to defeat her. The Salvation Project is a secret conspiracy of international elites convinced that democracy is a hopelessly inadequate and dangerous form of government to cope with the multiple existential threats posed by global warming, nuclear proliferation, artificial intelligence, genetic editing, and other advanced science emerging from the world’s laboratories. The Salvation Project’s goal: take control of the world's most powerful and scientifically advanced nations and create a global autocracy, with the United States as the most important target. U.S. President Isabel Aragon Tennyson (“Tenny,” as the world knows her) is running for reelection, unaware of the Salvation Project, the threat it poses to democracy in the U.S. and elsewhere, or the fact that her election opponent is a Manchurian-like candidate who would deliver the keys to the White House to Salvation Project leaders.

Numero di pagine: 272

Watch a video Watch a Fox News segment on The Longevity Project. This landmark study--which Dr. Andrew Weil calls "a remarkable achievement with surprising conclusions"--upends the advice we have been told about how to live to a healthy old age. We have been told that the key to longevity involves obsessing over what we eat, how much we stress, and how fast we run. Based on the most extensive study of longevity ever conducted, The Longevity Project exposes what really impacts our lifespan-including friends, family, personality, and work. Gathering new information and using modern statistics to study participants across eight decades, Dr. Howard Friedman and Dr. Leslie Martin bust myths about achieving health and long life. For example, people do not die from working long hours at a challenging job- many who worked the hardest lived the longest. Getting and staying married is not the magic ticket to long life, especially if you're a woman. And it's not the happy-go-lucky ones who thrive-it's the prudent and persistent who flourish through the years. With questionnaires that help you determine where you are heading on the longevity spectrum and advice about how to stay healthy, this ...
