We call it Earth but our planet might have been more aptly named Ocean. After all, nearly seventy percent of it is covered with saltwater, forming a great frontier that’s home to all sorts of awesome species. Sea Life Games & Puzzles invites kids to learn more about their favorite sea creatures and ocean phenomena as they work their way through puzzles, games, brainteasers, and jokes.
Kids will have hours of fun as they lead a clownfish through a coral maze, determine which oyster is hiding the pearl, and figure out ocean creatures are called lemons (sharks), cows (manatees), and barbers (fish). Throughout the voyage, children will also rub elbows—oops, make that fins!—with a famous dolphin and a few other marine celebrities. All in all, it’s a guaranteed whale of a good time—and that’s no fish story!
This collection of literature attempts to compile many classics that have stood the test of time and offer them at a reduced, affordable price in an attractive volume so that everyone can enjoy them.
Critical and radical perspectives have been central to the emergence of the sociology of sport as a discipline in its own right. This ground-breaking new book is the first to offer a comprehensive theory and method for a critical sociology of sport. It argues that class, political economy, hegemony and other concepts central to the radical tradition are essential for framing, understanding and changing social and political relations within sport and between sport and society.
The book draws upon the disciplines of politics, sociology, history and philosophy to provide a critical analysis of power relations throughout the world of sport, while offering important new case studies from such diverse sporting contexts as the Olympics, world football, boxing, cricket, tennis and windsurfing. In the process, it addresses key topics such as:
* nations and nationalism
* political economy.
Power Games can be used as a complete introduction to the study of sport and society. And will be essential reading for any serious student of sport. At the same time, it is a provocative book that by argument and example challenges those who research and write about sport to make their work relevant to social and political reform.
