Cult of Body: Sports and Physical Culture in Russia, 1891-1919
This collection contains unique material about various forms of sports in Tsarist and Soviet Russia and offers extraordinary sources for researchers into a variety of topics. Sports are essential to the evolution of the modern personality in terms of health, competitiveness and team play.
Tourism, another growth field in academic studies, relates directly to sports. Most significantly, contemporary interest in sexuality is informed by sports periodicals. Not only are gender roles transformed through sports, but the visuals in these publications illustrate emergent feminine and masculine ideals.
