Description

The Berkshire Encyclopedia of Extreme Sports provides the first international survey of extreme sports, which include a wide variety of physical pursuits and activities such as bungee jumping, dirt biking, sky surfing, and rock climbing: individualist, adventure-type sports rather than traditional team sports. “Extreme” also refers to the antisocial attitudes and uncompromising values associated with these new sports, attitudes and values that are often in sharp contrast to those of more conservative, mainstream, and middle-class sports. This volume is a state-of-the-art summary of where extreme sports are today, where they have come from, and how they are likely to grow and change in the years ahead.
