This project offers a new perspective for understanding the country and culture of Chile by examining the messages embedded in sport competitions. I will first detail the success of distance runner Manuel Plaza in his second-place finish at the 1928 Amsterdam Olympic Games, and analyze how Plaza's success at an international competition was adopted and interpreted to represent the entrance of Chile into modern and Western society. I will then discuss the struggle between different sections of Chilean society to create and monopolize the master narrative of the events that took place following the military coup of 1973. This section will demonstrate how sporting symbols like the National Stadium, World Cup, and Chilean national futbol team were used as the battleground to propagate these conflicting narratives. This project aims to understand how definitions of chilenidad, or Chilean identity, have evolved over time, and explore the intersection of chilenidad and sport. Drawing upon historical, political, and literary frameworks, this project advocates for the continued study of sport within the field of area studies, in order to learn from the cultural significance that sport carries.

From albatross to Row Z, this is your guide to the meanings and origins of hundreds of sporting terms and phrases as used by writers, sports professionals, commentators and fans alike. With such examples as pie throwing in cricket, the golden sombrero in baseball and handbags in football, the language of sport is often far removed from its logical meaning and these fanciful, creative and amusing usages allow us to look at the sports we love from a humorous and intriguing angle. Talking Balls leads stranded fans out of the corridor of uncertainty making them a fancy Dan amongst their friends or the M.V.P. when it comes to understanding the fascinating language and expressions of sport.

"Sport is a vital part of our daily lives and culture, but it is also a multi-million pound industry; it plays an important role in the functioning of many communities, but it is also crucial for the international entertainment network. Andrew Blake examines the tensions between these different areas, arguing that the body should be placed at the centre of all sporting discourses." "A critical look at sport can illuminate a whole range of issues - identity and nationality, design, performance, representation and aesthetics - and all these are explored in this innovative book, which opens up a whole new area of research and cultural criticism."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
