Ethnosport : The End of Decline (Paperback) (Alexey Kylasov)
About this item
The study Ethnosport describes cultural diversity, identity, and traditions in sport, with special reference to Eastern cultures. A rich world of games, competitions, rituals, and festivities opens when looking to Russia and to the minor peoples' cultures of Siberia, Central and East Asia. The book encourages research in similar living folk-sport traditions in further regions of the world. "Ethnosport" contributes to the understanding of bodily democracy as people's self-determination in bodily practice. Alexey Kylasov is a cultural anthropologist and has worked at several Russian academic institutions and in organizations of traditional wrestling and other popular folk sports.
