Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is an important, compelling, and cogently argued analysis of the complex relationship among sport, militarism, and American nationalism during the Cold War era."
(David L. Andrews Physical Cultural Studies, Department of Kinesiology, University of Maryland 2012-09-12)

"Theoretically grounded and empirically rich, this book breaks new ground: moving beyond traditional football histories, Montez de Oca investigates everyday engagements with popular social structures and meanings."
(Mary G. McDonald Department of Kinesiology and Health, Miami University 2013-01-23)

"Montez de Oca analyzes the relationships between sport, militarism, and US nationalism in very compelling ways, breaking new ground in the understanding of everyday social organization and significance. Recommended."
(Choice 2014-04-01)

"Discipline and Indulgence is a superb illustration of how sport creates, maintains, and reinforces shared meanings, identities, norms, and other important aspects of culture. Filled with rich data from of a wide variety of primary sources, the author produced a theoretically sound and thorough analysis of college football and the American way of life during the early Cold War."
(American Journal of Sociology 2014-07-01)
