For the Koreans, no sport has surpassed football in terms of its popularity and national importance, from the Japanese colonization era onwards. However, its importance has developed over time as a result of unusual and agonizing historical events, including the tragic split between North and South Korea. This volume attempts to assess football’s changing political and cultural place in Korea over the course of the twentieth century, from the Japanese colonial period via the Korean War to the end of the Cold War. It analyses the development and diffusion of football in North and South Korea from the following angles: nationalism and regionalism, internationalism and globalism, patronage, and the Korean style of play. It particularly concentrates on the social meanings of the North Korean «miracle» in the 1966 World Cup and of South Korea’s success in the 2002 tournament. The author shows that football in Korea has not only reflected changes in Korean society but helped to shape those changes.

Orwell was wrong. Sports are not "war without the shooting", nor are they "war by other means." To be sure sports have generated animosity throughout human history, but they also require rules to which the participants agree to abide before the contest. Among other things, those rules are supposed to limit violence, even death. More than anything else, sports have been a significant part of a historical "civilizing process." They are the opposite of war. As the historical profession has taken its cultural turn over the last few decades, scholars have turned their attention to subject once seen as marginal. As researchers have come to understand the centrality of the human body in human history, they have come to study this most corporeal of human activities. Taking early cues from physical educators and kinesiologists, historians have been exploring sports in all their forms in order to help us answer the most fundamental questions to which scholars have devoted their lives. We have now seen a veritable explosion excellent work on this subject, just as sports have assumed an even greater share of a globalizing world's cultural, political and economic space. Practiced by millions and watched by billions, sports provide an enormous share of content on the Internet. This volume combines the efforts of sports historians with essays by historians whose careers have been devoted to more traditional topics. We want to show how sports have evolved from ancient societies to the world we inhabit today. Our goal is to introduce those from outside this sub-field to this burgeoning body of scholarship. At the same time, we hope here to show those who may want to study sport with rigor and nuance how to embark on a rewarding journey and tackle profound matters that have affected and will affect all of humankind.

Sport is frequently considered to be an aspect of popular culture that is, or should be, untainted by the political. However, there is a broad consensus among academics that sport is often at the heart of the political and the political is often central to sport. From the 1936 Olympic Games in Nazi Germany to the civil unrest that preceded the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, sport and politics have remained symbiotic bedfellows. The Routledge Handbook of Sport and Politics goes further than any other book in surveying the complex, embedded relationships between sport and politics. With sections addressing ideologies, nation and statehood, corporate politics, political activism, social justice, and the politics of sports events, it introduces the conceptual foundations that underpin our understanding of the sport-politics nexus and examines emergent issues in this field of study. Including in-depth case studies from North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia, this is an essential reference for anybody with an interest in the social scientific study of sport.

Although socio-cultural issues in relation to women within the fields of sport and exercise have been extensively researched, this research has tended to concentrate on the Western world. Women, Sport and Exercise in the Asia-Pacific Region moves the conversation away entirely from Western contexts to discuss these issues with a sole focus on the geographic Asia-Pacific region. Presenting a diverse range of empirical case studies, from bodybuilding in Kazakhstan and Thailand, karate in Afghanistan, and women’s rugby in Fiji to women’s soccer in North Korea and netball in Papua New Guinea, the book demonstrates how sports may be used as a lens to examine the historical, socio-cultural and political specificities of non-Western and post-colonial societies. It also explores the complex ways in which non-Western women resist as well as accommodate sport and exercise-related sociocultural oppression, helping us to better understand the nexus of sport, exercise, gender, sexuality and power in the Asia-Pacific area. This is a fascinating and important resource for students of sports studies, sports management, sport development, social sciences and gender studies, as well as an excellent read for academics and researchers with an interest in sport, exercise, gender and post-colonial studies.

Die antijesuitische Publizistik bildet eine der wichtigsten Erscheinungsformen der Konfessionalisierung. Im Laufe des langen 16. Jahrhunderts bis zum Ausbruch des Dreissigjahrigen Krieges entsteht ein negatives Bild der Jesuiten, dessen Nachwirkungen bis heute spurbar sind. Diese Arbeit verfolgt eine dezidiert literaturwissenschaftliche Linie. In den drei grossen Bereichen Theologie, Politik und Moral werden die antijesuitischen Texte auf ihre literatursoziologische Einordnung, ihr Erscheinungsbild und ihre Argumentationsstruktur hin untersucht. Der historische Hintergrund der Texte wird dabei ebenso beruhrt wie die ubergeordnete Frage, wie Polemik insgesamt funktioniert. Als zentral erweist sich die Inszenierung von Gegensatzen: Gut und Bose, Christus und Antichrist, unschuldige Christen und verderbte Jesuiten. An der Schnittstelle zwischen Literatur- und Geschichtswissenschaft ist diese Arbeit sowohl fur Germanisten, als auch fur Historiker und Kirchenhistoriker von Interesse."

Wie kann man sich im Maghreb des 20. Jahrhunderts den postkolonialen Körper vorstellen? Susanne Kaiser findet Antworten hierauf in den literarischen Werken von Assia Djebar und Tahar Ben Jelloun, die hier zum ersten Mal unter der Fragestellung, was der Körper ist, verglichen werden. Es zeigt sich, dass nach über 100 Jahren der unterschiedlichsten kulturellen, sozialen und religiösen Einflüsse Konzepte von Körperlichkeit vielschichtig und immer in Bewegung sind: zwischen kolonialen Praktiken und gesellschaftlichen Zwängen, zwischen Disziplinierung und Widerstand, zwischen sozialer Konstruktion und Determinismus, zwischen erzählenden und erzählten Körpern. Erzählen, Sprache und Gesellschaft »verkörpern« sich dabei auf je eigene Weise.

Islamisches Recht wird oftmals als starr und entwicklungsunfahig wahrgenommen. Die Reduktion des islamischen Rechts auf Religion und jahrhundertealte Tradition verfehlt jedoch dessen Dynamik und Wandelbarkeit. Wie ein modernes Recht fur die Familie im islamischen Rechtskreis entstehen kann, untersucht Lena-Maria Moller am Beispiel der neuen Familiengesetzbucher Bahrains, Katars und der Vereinigten Arabischen Emirate. Interdisziplinar und rechtsvergleichend erortert sie, inwieweit das neukodifizierte Ehe-, Scheidungs-, und Kindschaftsrecht den rasanten soziookonomischen Wandel der arabischen Golfregion abbildet und aktuellen Regelungserfordernissen gerecht wird. Neben der Berucksichtigung der Rechtspraxis im Familienrecht werden die jungsten Kodifikationen des arabischen Raums auch rechtshistorisch und rechtspolitisch kontextualisiert und ihr Entstehungsprozess eingehend beleuchtet.
