The world of extreme sports is evolving every day. Many of us are reinventing the parameters of tradition and creating new ways to do things. In 2016, skateboarding was among several new sports added to the 2020 Olympic line up. Quite impressive if you think about the startup days of skateboarding. In the late 40’s surfers wanted a way to “ride the waves” when there weren’t any. Now, it is the new Olympic sport. Extreme ironists all around the world have the same aspiration for their sport. The book, Extreme Ironing 101: A Quick Guide on How to Extreme Iron Step by Step from A to Z, goes in depth about what extreme ironing really is and the history behind this up-and-coming sport. The sport has already created quite a following, with thousands of extreme ironists worldwide. Ironists all over the world continue to invent new purpose for this extreme sport. Some are searching for exhilarating connections with the forces of nature. Some are wanting to send a message that they know how to iron. Other extreme ironists are examining and altering the framework of convention. Then, there are those that have made it their mission to get more people involved and make this the next Olympic sport. What makes extreme ironing so unique is that it has become a limitless extreme sport. It is about taking ironing outside the traditional setting of indoors, and there are no rules. The rules of engagement are not defined, and this is exactly how ironists want it. Ironists continue to push the limit with this sport by learning from each other and consistently challenging each other to conquer life outside of the existing parameters. The list has no end! Extreme ironing on your surfboard while catching some waves, on a motorcycle, cycling, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, skiing, scuba diving, parasailing, skiing, snowboarding, horseback riding, tree climbing, rock climbing, at the park, summiting the highest peaks.

Sequel to Draw One in the Dark and The Gentleman Takes a Chance¾a new entry in Sarah A. Hoyts celebrated Shifter contemporary fantasy series! For years, Rafiel Trall, one of Goldport's finest, has been walking the fine line between enforcing human law and protecting the shifters who come his way. A lion shifter himself, he's found this duty onerous. Lately it's been lightened by his friendship with Tom Ormson, a dragon shifter, and Kyrie Smith, a panther shifter. This should make it easier for him to find a solution for the crimes of a feral shifter¾but not when an as yet unnamed entity takes out the Great Sky Dragon, the head of all dragon shifters. With his power devolving on Tom Ormson just as Kyrie finds that a mysterious ailment prevents her from shifting, Rafiel must rely only on himself, a seductive dragon girl and an even more seductive and unreliable old shifter to solve the crimes, maintain shifters hidden and keep his best friend in the world from becoming a dragon of unimaginable mass destruction.

From Playgrounds To Playstation

In this romp through the changing landscape of nineteenth- and twentieth-century American toys, games, hobbies, and amusements, senior historian of technology Carroll Pursell poses a simple but interesting question: What can we learn by studying the relationship between technology and play? From Playgrounds to PlayStation explores how play reflects and drives the evolution of American culture. Pursell engagingly examines the ways in which technology affects play and play shapes people. The objects that children (and adults) play with and play on, along with their games and the hobbies they pursue, can reinforce but also challenge gender roles and cultural norms. Inventors—who often talk about "playing" at their work, as if motivated by the pure fun of invention—have used new materials and technologies to reshape sports and gameplay, sometimes even crafting new, extreme forms of recreation, but always responding to popular demand. Drawing from a range of sources, including scholarly monographs, patent records, newspapers, and popular and technical journals, the book covers numerous modes and sites of play. Pursell touches on the safety-conscious playground reform movement, the dazzling mechanical innovations that gave rise to commercial amusement parks, and the media's colorful promotion of toys, pastimes, and sporting events. Along the way, he shows readers how technology enables the forms, equipment, and devices of play to evolve constantly, both reflecting consumer choices and driving innovators and manufacturers to promote toys that involve entirely new kinds of play—from LEGOs and skateboards to beading kits and videogames.

This important new book brings together gender studies and sexuality studies to provide original and critical insights into processes of identity formation in a wide range of sport-related contexts. The authors draw on contemporary debates concerning gender and identity from a range of disciplines including sociology, social and cultural geography, media studies and management studies, to address key issues in masculinity, femininity and sexuality: Part 1: Representing masculinities in sport analyses media representations of men’s sports, exploring the variety and complexity of concepts of masculinity. Part 2: Transgressing femininities in sport makes use of case studies to examine the experiences of women in male-dominated sporting arenas. Part 3: Performing sexualities in sport analyses the role of queer theory in sport studies, explores experiences of and responses to homophobia in sport, and examines the significance of the Gay Games. This book will be of particular interest to students and academics working in sport studies, leisure studies, gender studies, queer and sexuality studies, social and cultural geography, and sociology.

This landmark publication brings together some of the most perceptive commentators of the present moment to explore core ideas and cutting edge developments in the field of Leisure Studies. It offers important new insights into the dynamics of the transformation of leisure in contemporary societies, tracing the emergent issues at stake in the discipline and examining Leisure Studies’ fundamental connections with cognate disciplines such as Sociology, Cultural Studies, History, Sport Studies and Tourism. This book contains original work from key scholars across the globe, including those working outside the Leisure Studies mainstream. It showcases the state of the art of contemporary Leisure Studies, covering key topics and key thinkers from the psychology of leisure to leisure policy, from Bourdieu to Baudrillard, and suggests that leisure in the 21st century should be understood as centring on a new ‘Big Seven’ (holidays, drink, drugs, sex, gambling, TV and shopping). No other book has gone as far in redefining the identity of the discipline of Leisure Studies, or in suggesting how the substantive ideas of Leisure Studies need to be rethought. The Routledge Handbook of Leisure Studies should therefore be the intellectual guide of first choice for all scholars, academics, researchers and students working in this subject area.
