Summary

Out of Bounds looks at the media representation of professional sports through the lens of cultural studies. The editors contend that the popularity of sports derives not simply from their appeal as leisure entertainment but from their role in larger systems of class, race, gender, and masculinity. Essays in the collection challenge the assumption of the apolitical nature of sports by examining how they contribute to the contested process of defining social identities.
