Product Code: H736
ISBN: 9780881460766
Product Format: Hardback
Availability: In stock

Erasing Public Memory confronts the unacknowledged and uninterrogated assimilation of racial categories into aesthetic theories. The editors and contributors based much of their analysis on exposing the phenomenon that race and racism is at the very center of knowledge production in the academy, a process designed not so much to achieve a disinterested will to epistemological thresholds of truth, but to invent a racialized meta-rationality to the exclusion of all alternative ways of knowing.

Dribbling for Dawah: Sports among Muslim Americans
By author: Steven Fink
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: P536
ISBN: 9780881465921
Availability: In stock
Price: $30.00
Amidst a proliferation of scholarly literature about Islam in the United States, very little attention has been given to sports among Muslim Americans. While books about professional Muslim athletes can be found, this is the first book to investigate Muslim American sports at the local level, looking at Muslim basketball leagues, sports programs at mosques and Islamic schools, and sports events hosted by Muslim organizations. Drawing upon personal interviews and observations as well as scholarly sources, this book demonstrates that participation in sports activities plays a vital role in strengthening Islamic piety and fellowship, and in connecting Muslims with non-Muslims in post-9/11 America.

An Unholy Alliance : The Sacred And Modern Sports
Product Code: P304
ISBN: 9780865549562
Product Format: Paperback
Availability: In stock
Price: $25.00
An Unholy Alliance offers a dissenting view to the claim by a growing number of scholars that Sports are a new religion. The last few years have seen a spate of books that might be classified by a genre called "Sports Apologetics," that is, arguments defending or celebrating in one way or another the familiar and ongoing alliance in America between sports and religion. Recently, claims have been made by scholars that sports are an authentic religion in and of them-selves. They make this startling assertion not by showing connections with the teachings of Buddha, Jesus, Mohammed, or Moses, but by parallels between the rites of modern games and those of preliterate man that were "religious" in nature because they were designed to propitiate powers and to ward off evil for the tribes employing them. In this evocative book, Higgs and Braswell suggest that while sports may often be good things, they are not inherently divine. They do not focus on wide-spread abuse in sports as evidence for their counterargument. Rather, they question the use of mythological parallels from prehistory as justification for viewing sports as a religion.
