The essays that comprise this book mark new territory in the study of sport in the Hispanic world, a key site of cultural experience for the populations of Latin America, the United States and the Iberian Peninsula. The scope of the volume is the exploration of the representation and interaction of sport / text / body in a variety of cultural forms in Latin America, Spain and the chicano population of the USA. As such, it opens a path for further study of an area that is experiencing significant growth in the international academic community. The book consists of 11 chapters by different authors, and an introduction, totalling c.85,000 words. The essays deal with the key sporting practices of the Hispanic world, including boxing, baseball, athletics, Olympic movements and football, approaching them as physical manifestations in their own right and as cultural representations (via media images, poetry, narrative fiction, murals) through the research methodologies of the humanities and social sciences.

This book was previously published as a special issue of the International Journal of the History of Sport

Joe Cocker and the clubs: Pigs Can Fly - With a little help from my friends is a Special 50th anniversary edition book to mark the very peak of life at Club 60 & the Esquire during the exciting early 1960s. The book explains how Joe Cocker first began his sensational musical career under the guidance of his first manager and club owner Terry Thornton. And it also takes you behind the scenes with the stars at two of Terry's former Northern clubs, Club 60 & the Esquire, which were both owned and run by the late entrepreneur in the 1960s. It is a unique account of life within the industrial city of Sheffield when a musty old beer cellar first helped to stage a remarkable revival of popular live entertainment and encouraged an extraordinary new wave of live music to thrive and develop the talents of home grown stars and introduce a wealth of international performers. In addition to Joe Cocker, it also features: - Dave Berry & the Cruisers, Zoot Money, Frank White, Jimmy Crawford & the Coasters, Eric Clapton, Rod Stewart, Alan Price & the Animals, Georgie Fame, Screaming Lord Sutch and the Savages, Long John Baldry, John Lee Hooker, Sonny Boy Williamson, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Frankenstein & the Monsters, Johnny Dark & the Midnighters, the Walker Brothers, the Kinks... and many more. Included too are several dozen black and white rare photographs of the stars performing at the two new venues, together with a wealth of interesting pictures of many of the regular club members and supporters. At the back there is also a unique mystery section where readers are asked if they put a name to some of the bands or singers... * Also listen to Joe Cocker's original LIVE demo tape on Youtube: https: //youtu.be/ASKPdRcU_MU
